The Shinzen Japanese Garden is always first on my list at Woodward Park. It is magnificent all times of year, but especially Spring & Fall. Be sure & take a camera. Feed the Koi (food available there) & wander the paths & over the bridges. Events scheduled throughout the year. Beautiful venue for weddings. Great spots throughout the park for... More

A great place to walk your dog or yourself. The dog park can be fun but occasionally has too many aggressive dogs. The Eaton Trail or the walk to the river are both great.

The reason I only give Woodward Park an "average" rating is because there are no daily entertainment venue's... with one very nice Children's Playground in the north section and Frisbee Golf. You bring your own party/group/celebration to this park. The Japanese Tea Garden has rather limited hours and is an extra admission although very worthwhile. The Tea Garden is very... More

Woodward Park is a nice expanse of trees, trails, a lake, fields, picnic areas, and even a dog park. My wife and I enjoy riding our bicycles around the park. Occasionally we will sit by the lake for a peaceful quiet time. There are few large parks in Fresno, and this is probably the best overall considering its size, facilities,... More

its a very nice park great to walk, run, jog or just relax and have a BBQ picnic, but if you want a BBQ shelter make sure to reserve it in plenty of time they are high demand during the summer since they are a large shelter and with seat plenty of people.

I love Woodward Park. Ducks, Geese and all the animals. Plenty of room to play and walk. It does get busy on beautiful weekends. I don't mind paying the $5 it helps keep some of the hoodlums out and helps pay to keep the place pretty. The biggest problem is PEOPLE who don't pick up there own trash. They need... More

While visiting my Mom I took my dogs to Woodward Park. We had quite a nice walk as the park is large. I felt safe and will definately return for more walks.

Lovely park in a very nice area in Fresno. There are several small lakes with flowing streams. Nice memorials for the astronauts lost on both Space Shuttle missions.

The only downside to this park is the goatheads (thorns). This park pretty much has everything a person want as far as biking: bmx, dirt jumps, trails, etc...
