Fun place to visit

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.

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.

This is what I love about Carlsbad folks. The people of the community make every attraction that much better. This park is wonderful, spacious, green and luscious with plenty of tennis courts and a well lit basketball court at night. Take a walk with that special someone or meet up with some friends to play a pick up game of... More
