Open grassy areas to play, throw a ball, frisbee, fly a kite. Hand carved merry go round, water fountains for the kids to play in, walking paths connect to the walking bridge, bicycle, run, or skateboard. Lots of shops, and food options

We saw the park from the walking bridge. It looked like a fun place but there were so many things to see...we did not think we would have time. So glad we went on our way out of town. We had 2 small children so you can imagine how much the loved the Merry Go Round! The fountains were beautiful.... More

This park area is filled with life! Lots of recreational activity. People were playing football, riding bikes, paying soccer, listening to a concert, playing in the water pools, walking, and picnicking. The scenery is fantastic!

The splash pad and carousel were fun for the kids and the green spaces were ideal for picnics and playing. The access via the huge/long pedestrian bridge adds to the outdoor exercise - for those who want the exercise.

Coolidge Park has an indoor carousel that you can ride for $1. It also has some walking paths as well as an in-ground fountain to beat the summer heat. Conveniently located on the Northshore with interesting restaurants and shops nearby!

Accessible bathrooms, parking is plentiful and $1 and... More
