This is a great park for all ages. This park had a wonderful pool that is open all summer long, with a kiddle pool for the youngest ages and a great park center. There is a nice dog park available. Dogs have to be leashed but you can walk them around the path also, and you will find doggy bags... More

This is a lovely park in Manchester with a marked pebble trail good for walking by yourself, with friends and or with your dog. There is a fenced dog park which is well kept. You may just make a friend.

We visited this park while doing some geocaching and what a beautiful park! The geocaches were hid along the main path that encircles the park so we were able to appreciate everything the park had to offer. It is so large that even though there was a lot going on there, you did not feel like you were crowded in.... More

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.

It lacks areal connection to nature,... More

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.

Bring the whole family to have fun outside! There's an outdoor pool with a terrific new pool house. Lots of playground equipment in several versions for little tots to school age kids. Picnic tables & even a couple of small pavilions for you party - reserve ahead. Best of all, there is a gorgeous 1 mile walking path around the... More
