I walk in this park a few days a week. Mostly flat just one slight incline. Broad paved walking path. Very safe. Usually has several other walkers out and about. Has a playground for the kids but is not in great repair right now.

Gillie park has a 1 mile track which is excellent to walk or jog on. It also has numerous soccer fields and baseball diamonds. It is very well maintained all year long.

Gille Park has a lot to offer. Clean open fields, mile-marked pavement paths, sporting areas, and even an outdoor workout space with machines that move with your own body weight. Highly recommended.

A little sun, a little shade, we love taking our afternoon / evening walk about along the perimiter walkway.

Nice walking path all the way around park. Two entrances, so plenty of parking. Playground has plenty of things, separated into different area depending on age - and there's more than one baby/infant swing seat. Nearby pavilion provides shade during hot days. Also has basketball...More
