We are traveling with our small dog and the park is pet friendly. This a PERFECT place for a nice daily walk for all of us. The park is very big with walking paths and manicured lawns. The park is well-maintained and very clean and great for a family.

Our family has always loved going to the Rec, for a nice long walk, to play some tennis, watch the kids practice, or watching Dad coach a team!! It's a beautiful place made of great memories!! We are so lucky to have our practice fields surrounded by these beautiful mountains!! It just doesn't get any better than this!

Great location for walking the dog (there is even a fenced-in dog run) or just taking an exercise walk around the 1-mile walking track.

I use this park often for walks. But it is really a great resource for the whole family. There are jogging and walking tracks, baseball and soccer fields, a pool, a wooded bike path, a skateboard park and lots of programs for all ages. The facilities are beautifully maintained- I see the staff out constantly mowing and cleaning and keeping... More

This place was easy to find and had stuff for all ages. It even had a pool, though it was surprisingly too cold to use it in August. The facility was clean and there were a good number of other kids there too. I recommend it to anyone traveling with kids, especially younger ones.

A perfect place for the kids to run around and have a great time. From the swings to the basketball courts to the skate park, You can even sit and watch a little league game. Can't beat it.

Nice park with plenty of parking for a large event. There are ballparks, pavilions, etc. Easy to find on the outskirts north of Manchester.
