Whether you like baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, tennis or just hanging on the swings, Poinsettia Park has it. The oversized artificial grass soccer field is usually jammed with teams but often has some areas open for throwing a football or running sprints. The tennis courts are nice and not always occupied. It's a great park to spend a few hours... More

Nothing I didn't dislike. It was fun for families. We walked to the park with the family. Spent some time enjoying the shaded areas and laying some games.

No dogs or bicycles, skateboards allowed for safety reasons. A great place to take the... More

We live within walking distance of one of Carlsbad's best parks. It's a huge place with tennis courts, basketball courts, softball fields, soccer fields, lots of spacious grass fields, playgrounds for the little guys and plenty of parking. What more could you ask for? It's well maintained and a real jewel in the city. In the summer they hold several... More

The playground and sitting area for parents has thoughtfully been planned out. Used to come often when my granddaughter was about 2 years old. Now she is 8 years old and we have moved farther away.
