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.

This place has it all. There is a dirt "track" around the ball-field side where you can run, walk or bike. There are picnic tables on both sides and 3 or 4 ball fields on the newer section. There's also a really nice play ground on the new side. On the old side is the old railroad, a creek (which... More

Very beautiful. Please don't forget to visit the museum. It helps to know how people live in old time. I came together with my son's school field trip.
