This is a wonderful park to go jogging, tennis, and relaxing. It's a great place to go work out. I love working out in this park.

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

A huge, well laid out park with lots of parking. There is room for all kinds of outdoor activity. You will find well placed park benches to enjoy the scenery.

It's right near downtown and there is pretty good parking. Rumor has it there may be homeless squatting there but I've not had that experience. It's a lovely picnic are also. Go see it. Decide for yourself.
