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.

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.

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.
