A view of the mountain skyline, a picnic dinner, enjoying music with neighbors and friends-what better way is there to pass a summer Sunday evening? Come to City Park and either buy dinner at the dozen assembled food trucks or bring from home. An ideal...More

Disregard the negative comments as I found this park an excellent venue for my 3.5 year old an 1.5 year old. The park offered ample space to run around and a full playground to entertain the young ones. After a play we walked around with...More

We visited the park after leaving the Nature and Science museum. I spotted a splash pad nearby and since it was incredibly hot we decided to take my 7 year old over and let him play on it for a little bit. It was fabulous!...More

There is a lake and a duck pond. And lots of grass. While there is tons of area to take a walk, I was expecting more gardens. The zoo and museum are both there but those will cost you a bunch of money. The garden...More

We love to hang out by the lake, take a walk, watch the wildlife and just take in the view of the beautiful skyline. This is a great park to visit!

Good answer. I'd just add that the museum and zoo both have ample parking (and flank the park on two sides). Those parking lots can be crowded on weekends and during special events. Even when busy, though, both have... More
