There were plenty of water fountains... More

A nice place to spend a lazy afternoon and forget about the busyness of the world. Relaxing and comfortable even in 100 degree heat. Worth a nice stop to relax.

Not a lot to say. This is a park, green oasis in the urban desert of Palm Springs. It's well kept and a delight to run around in the early morning. It has two or three fitness stations. Not enough for the really serious. And the bars get hot after 8am. Good for BBQ but lots of unfortunate folk go... More

A lot of great options to play or just relax. A lot of nice trees and shaded areas to beat the summer heat of Palm Springs

I go there every morning with my kids to play. Park is very nice and clean. Its also very safe. There are several tennis courts, basket ball courts, a big playground to run around and a very kids friendly playground. The best park in Palm Spring.

I've been to several events here and it's always fun! The last was called PSNIC I believe. It was for Palm Springs Neighborhood Associations and related businesses and organizationes. The mounted police were a hit and the food was good. There was water provided by Denver Water.

Very nice park close to downtown and the Movie Colony. Lots of big trees and paved pathways for walking the dogs. Also a large play area for the kinds. Across the street, next to the school, is the Wellness park which is also very nice.

This is a good size park with a nice walking trail. There are tennis and basketball courts, a good size playground for children and many shade trees to picnic under.
