One of the several amazing Palm Springs City parks. Love the Wellness Garden where you can even do outdoor exercising and yoga and the fact that this public space is treasured by so many diverse groups. This is an experience of the very best of living in Palm Springs!

Since I'm a serious tennis player ( and instructor) I like playing with different people and places wherever I go. Ruth Hardy Park is a great place to find a doubles or even singles match with upper level players. You just show up and find a court where there are people playing and people waiting on THAT court to play.... More

I took a lap around the park on my morning walk. It’s a little north of downtown and away from the busy streets. It appeared very well maintained. There were a large number of picnic tables with bbq grills, shade trees, parking and tennis courts. It looks to be a good park for lounging, walking, jogging, or dog walking. I... More

This park is centrally located and offers plenty of shade to get out of the heat. It's always been clean and safe when we have been there.

Large park not too far from the main drag. Good place to take your dog for a walk. If you're looking for an off-leash dog park, there's one right next to the airport / next to Civic Offices, with a large parking lot.

We have walked around and through the park a number of times while renting nearby. It is fairly clean, with attractive landscaping, a fitness trail and tennis courts. Need to add pickleball courts!
