The park is lovely with fun and interactive exhibits but it's overrun with indigent and other unsavory characters, not a place for children to play and explore the City needs to be more diligent in the cleanliness and safety here...sadly! This is not a park for kids to play...

It was great to bring the kids and watch a movie outside. Bathrooms are available and it has play equipment for children.

This is just down the hill and extremely convenient for us. Dog walkers take note, this is a great park to exercise your animals. Maintained open spaces, in fact, the park is kept up better then most that I have scene. Typical park, lawns, trees,open spaces, ball fields, rest rooms, I have not heard much about "trouble" in the park... More

This park could be so much more, but the homeless have claimed it as their own. Amazing that it is next door to city hall and the council chambers, yet nothing is done. The attractions are so-so, The maintenance of the park is sub-standard, the restrooms are filthy. There are a few restaurants across Broadway, George's has pretty good burgers... More

For one of the only parks in Escondido, this one needs some maintenance and a facelift. It is in a great location and near several places to eat but it is just a bit ran down.

One look turned us away. Lots of open green space and a monument or two, but the number of homeless folks lying about put us off spending any significant time there. After beginning to feel threatened we moved on back to Grand Ave.

the park gets attention the minute you drive by, however the park itself is boring for the kids. It only has one slide inside the "grape" and the "vine" is for the kids to climb. That is all. The portable bathrooms are never clean, always sting and with flies all around. I been to this park few times and had... More

For a free field trip, this is the place to go for Escondido students. When we studied the city in a 1st/2nd grade combo class, this local park provided docents and lots of hands on opportunities. A train car was great for climbing on, and for the politer (girls) there was a tour of a replica of a period house.

It has got some nice grass and a little bit of play structures for kids. I think they launch the fireworks from here too.

Despite what you might be reading elsewhere, this is a nice small historical park, albeit used sometimes by transients. There were Park employees there watching for any trouble the whole time we were there. The 5 or 6 historic buildings in the park were brought there, or recreated there, from former locations elsewhere in town. One of the buildings is... More
