Beautiful park, lots of geese and ducks and very pet friendly

The $5 parking fee is well worth it for this lovely park. The geese will slow you down driving in the park, they know it's their park! We had such a nice time watching a couple... read more

We had such a nice time watching a couple feed the birds cheerios of all things! They shared their feed with my husband who enjoyed getting rid of the bully geese to let... More

We spent several hours at the park this morning just walking around the small lake, looking at the birds and trees. There is a $5 vehicle entrance fee. Bathrooms are available along with picnic tables and hiking paths. Nice to stay in the shade and walk around the lake.

I'm staying in Fresno while my husband is here for work, and Woodward Park seems to be Fresno's one redeeming quality, the one thing that might give it an edge over Bakersfield for the two cities' constant battle for worst place in California. Anyhow, Woodward Park has various trails weaving throughout the park. The grounds are well-kept, and I felt... More

Lots of space in this park. Easy to have gatherings of small to large sizes (with reservations.) Open and big enough to provide respite from the city.

The best place to exercise in Fresno. Great views, miles of trails both paved and not. There are four playgrounds, none are very good. Lots of ducks to feed, and places to explore.
