A large green space on the edge of downtown. Memorials as you would expect. A Velodrome! Hope the cyclists are one it during your visit. Not many Velodromes in the USA. Great place for a picnic. Check the calendar for special events.

The beach is open again! Playgrounds, fields, near the indoor pool and skatepark. There is something for eveyone at Memorial Park. despite Park cutbacks, this place has stayed relatively clean and maintained. Check out the online calendar and see if something is coming up for a special treat.

Maybe I'm biased since I live here? Memorial Park is not in the best area of town anymore. However, they have added a skate board park which I suppose skateboarders love. The park is usually just kind of a hangout for young people. There is a small (by my standards) lake in the park but not a favorite local hangout... More

Nothing special. Lots of grass and equal amounts of pot smokers and homeless. Not a great show for a wonderful idea...the memorial itself.

There was a lot of bird poop everywhere. Not well kept. Sad, because it has much potential

Memorial is your average big park, but it's a real hoot Labor Day weekend when the hot air balloons launch. It's a better experience than Albuquerque.

We were drawn by the memorial to military service and was surprised to find Prospect Lake with access to the water and lots of open green space. Depending on the time of year and the planned activities in the park determines how busy the park becomes during park hours.

Not much to do. Crowded with homeless and they'll pester you. Used to be a lot better.
