Walking trails around a beautiful pond with ducks, swing sets and slides, great pavillions and grills for cookouts, soccer fields, and a skateboard park are all offered at this park. Most of the park is shaded. Outdoor concerts are held at Ballard Park and outdoor movies. There are many events held at this beautiful park.

We moved near Ballard park in March and it's one of the best features of our area of town. We love watching the ducks and walking our dog there. It's always neat to see kids skateboarding and playing soccer too. You can even see people doing renaissance rein acting sometimes if their club is meeting there! People fish for free... More

Nice place to go and unwind. The ducks loved to be fed bread and most lol are friendly. Great play area for little kids. Love to just walk around and relax.

I was surprised to discover a cute little museum and quality Veteran Museum at this park. Staff are very friendly and the park had interesting things to see. A nice family friendly place that is not overwhelming in size.

This was "the place" to use swing sets and pond fishing when the kids were little. Ducks abound with a paved walking trail. It is part of a much larger complex of soccer fields and adjacent baseball park. Covered pavilion. See Tupelo Parks and Rec for info.

I live in Tupelo, and would refer anyone to Ballard Park, maybe just to feed the ducks or take their children there, It is an all around great place to spend the day!

Tupelo has worked hard to upgrade this park with soccer fields and many other areas of interest. The lake still holds the eye but as population grows more room will be needed. Nice area for a afternoon out.
