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!
