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.

We love this in town park. The dogs love it too! It's big, and most dogs are on leash. It's just a great get away and there's shade...if it gets too hot!

My cousin and I went to the Ruth Hardy Park to play tennis at about 9am on a Friday. There was plenty of free parallel parking along N Via Miraleste, the street next to the tennis courts. We came in town to see the BNP Tournament and this place was recommended by the front desk personnel at our resort. The... More
