During our 5 day stay we tried various school playgrounds closer to our hotel and finally headed to tripadvisor to find one that wasn't locked behind fencing and gates! This park was great for kids both young and old as it has the playground, basketball and tennis court, and a trail all the way around the playground- many older kids... More

The tennis action starts at 8 AM and continues throughout the day. Mostly doubles, mixed and some women's play. Your partner can walk the dog while waiting. Nice for picnics and kids to play. All this for free!

Nice for picnic, walking the dog, tennis (when you can get a court). Right in the middle of everything. Check out the Wellness Park - for fitness walking and there is Yoga in the park on Saturday mornings at 10.

We've been walking our dogs up to this park. It's very large, and people are friendly. Most people that have dogs keep them on leash here. If not, the dogs are well trained to stay close by their owners. There is a playground for children, and it's a good spot for runners. The park adjoins (but is not part of)... More

Lots of green space to run and wear off some energy. The playground is very well suited for the under 6 crowd.

The Ruth Hardy Park is a nice clean park with beautifully kept trees and shrubs. There are a few exercise stations along the walkway which are fun to use.

Just a green open area for you to sit and walk in, enough space for a bit of soccer kick about or other ball games.

Nice green belt in the desert with trees and exercise park in the Wellness park section. Great areas to sit and look at the mountain or meditate. The desert landscape and shrubs are beautiful. You can play tennis and there is a basketball area. Also a children's playground.

After a lot of sign seeing it was a nice place to stop for a picnic and relax. It's right in the Movie District
