Nice place for an evening stroll. Very safe

In the evening, lots of people walk around the lake - joggers, people with push-chairs, dog walkers. All very civilised and safe.

Wilson park has walking trails, a pond with lots of ducks, softball fields, indoor gym, outdoor rink, and much more. Hosts the farmer's market on Tuesdays.

Recently I've been walking at Wilson Park a few days a week. It's almost a mile around (.91) and much of it is shaded. The cement path is flat around the perimeter except for one small section. But you can switch it up easily by taking one of several paths in between. The Farmers Market is there every Tuesday and... More

I first experienced Wilson Park when I went to the Saturday Farmer's Market - they had everything - WOW. Then one day, my husband strolled through the park and we were amazed at so many amenities. The park offers everything, BBQ areas, play areas, batting cates, tennis, basketball and softball courts, horseshoe courts, picnic areas, restrooms, indoor sports center, tree... More

I used to run in this park almost every day in April and it's so nice! It's a safe place and you can go there with your friends or family for a bbq. There is also a Starbucks next to the park on Crenshaw ;)

A very clean and SAFE park in South Bay. Love to walk, jog, just sit on a bench or maybe under a tree.

I used to bring my son there when he was smaller and writing this reminds me it would still be fun destination. One can walk on grass for it's therapeutic value, as well as on sidewalks. Nice playgrounds and kids structures, Two big fields with a hill in between I believe I recall bikes there. Oh and the Farmer's Markets... More

Other reviews I have seen here describe the park very well. I might add: There is a very popular paved walking path around the perimeter of much of the park. It is 0.91 miles around according to a sign. Popular with people like me, who just walk around it for exercise, joggers, dog walkers, and occasionally the local firefighters who... More
