Nice dog friendly park in a nice neighborhood. No bums which is a plus. There are always tennis balls laying around from the tennis courts which my doggies love!

It's a great to visit every day. I took my two small dogs for their walk. The park is impeccable. Grass, trees, walkways, picnic benches and tables are clean and well cared for. The view is spectacular and the atmosphere serene. Highly recommend.

In all the years that I have lived here I never realized what a gem was in my own back yard. I have passed it hundreds of times with little interest. On my latest pass by I thought I should check it out. I biked over expecting to find bike trails and the usual park setting. Along with the trails... More

This park is just a beautiful green oasis with picnic table, and shade in the middle of town. Get some take out and enjoy it in the park under a tree. Well worth the time spent relaxing.

Come early to get a tennis court. House rules are sit on court to wait for game. The regulars are friendly and usually willing to play with the outsiders.

Ruth Hardy Park has tennis courts, basketball courts and lots of grass to play on. The park is named after Ruth Hardy who owned the Ingleside Inn. She was the first woman on the P.S. counsel and responsible for the palm trees on Palm Canyon. She is also responsible for no street lights….we have lights on our palm trees so... More

There are very few public green spaces in Palm Springs, so it doesn't have much competition. Tennis courts, volleyball, fitness area. A good atmosphere.

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.
