If you have young kids, this is perhaps one of the best little parks we've been to

We have 5 kids, 8,4,3,2 & 2 months (as of writing this) and they were enamored with this playground. We were too for that fact. We liked that it's fenced in and the entrances are... read more

Very clean and pretty. A nice place to take the family for a picnic or to play around. You could spend the whole day here relaxing.

Turn right, before the airplanes, then take the next left and follow the road to the back to find the largest (fenced in) children's playground in town. (The small playground in the front isn't what I'm referring to.) There is also a large pond with ducks that many people feed. Something fun to do with kids and near most hotels... More

We have 5 kids, 8,4,3,2 & 2 months (as of writing this) and they were enamored with this playground. We were too for that fact. We liked that it's fenced in and the entrances are at both ends which makes it less of a headache to worry about kids wondering off. There are a ton of swings, playsets, and everything... More

Nice place to just walk and enjoy nature. You can also do some fishing while you are visiting the park. No charge is a plus.

I was visiting from out of town and noticed this park when I drove by. I took my son here for a couple hours to play on the playground which was fantastic. He's not even 2 yet, so he usually gets bored at a playground after a few minutes, but not here. He had a ball, and I finally had... More

Basil Griffin is good for people of all ages. If you are family you can picnic by the lake, feed the ducks, and play on the playground. If you have teens, there is a basketball court and tennis court. If your an adult, you can walk and people watch. A lake divides the park into two halves. You can walk... More

This was one of the first parks we went to after moving to Bowling green, Ky. It's huge! It was very clean and you can picnic, fish, feed the geese, and play on there fenced in playground. It quickly became our favorite park.

This park has something for everyone.From the complete fenced in playground with just about every kind of play ground equipment you can imagine to the beautiful lake where you can feed ducks geese and fish, even fishing. There are basket ball, football,baseball and tennis courts. Great place to visit for the day with the family.
