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.

It's about 2 city blocks big...it's square-shaped and completely flat, it has tennis courts, a playground, scattered trees, grass, benches, and parking. It's perfectly designed and maintained. This is great for the neighbors, but offers nothing for the tourist looking for something special. Fortunately, unlike other parks in Palm... More

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
