Some of the most simple things in life are the nicest things right? Well, this is one of them. It’s a medium-sized neighbourhood park that has a ton to offer. It has many tennis courts, and a large green space with little barbecues and picnic tables. There is also an area that has exercise stations that help you get healthy.... More

This park looked like a more typical midwestern style park. Families were there with their children. There was a definite lack of homeless people in this park unlike the one over by the senior center. Very nice park to walk through in a wonderfully interesting neighborhood near downtown.

We walked here almost everyday. The park is a lovely oasis of green with the nearby wellness park that is worth a visit as well. There were many locals walking their dogs. The area is peaceful and a beautiful place to walk and contemplate how blessed we were all are indeed. Love this areas of Palm Springs.

came across this park while cycling round the Movie Colony area . Just an average city park . Wouldn't go out of my way to go there , but a nice interlude while looking at Move Star houses !

Named after one of the early hotel owners and city council women, this park is a full square block oasis in the city.

Right in The Movie Colony this is a great spot to get some air, run or do the par course and get a workout in. Lots of locals and tennis courts too.

Ruth Hardy is a wonderful park. There are basketball courts, children's play area, many tennis courts with lights, vast green space and public bbq's. Tall trees are scattered all around providing shade and there are plenty of picnic tables. All in all it's a very nice oasis in our desert community.
