What a beautiful park! This is a great place for picnics and birthday parties. What is lost by the lack of playground is made up by the railroad that operates on the weekends (see separate review). I live around the corner, and everytime I walk through the park I see families and high school seniors taking photographs. In the fall,... More

What a charming park. There is a small open air train ride that the kids (and we) were excited about riding. There was a small fee, the conductor was very nice and we stopped to chat with workers inside the station where the large locomotive was. The day was beautiful. Highly recommend this very low key attraction.

Reenactments of the Gettysburg address, cannon firing, flags everywhere, music in the Gazebo. Railroad a big hit with the kids of all ages. Truly a great day. Even on "regular weekends" the train is a big hit. Just a great park and area with interesting shops across the street.

This is the way that Poway would like to have been way back when. The location is great. Trendy, and good food at a reasonable price

Fun place for the kids to run around and explore. Picnic sites and restrooms. There is a restaurant there, the Hamburger Factory, but we didn't eat. Just a nice park and area.

Poway park is such a delightful place to stroll and watch young families enjoy their picnic by the stream. Watching the locamotives go past with children laughing and waving is wonderful. The park is wheelchair acceptable, has beautiful trees and just makes one feel good. A meal at the Hamburger Factory before a stroll is well worth the visit to... More

It's fine, but I think there are much better parks for children. Not a lot of shade near the playground and there were some shady characters walking around. I don't think I'd come to this park again if there was another option available,

This is such a nice park with museums and fountains and nice open space. A common place for dog walkers and families. They also have a train that runs on the weekends.

Small park primarily of interest due to the Hamburger Factory Restaurant, weekly farmers market and short round the park train rides. Some picnic tables and occasional craft fairs.
