“Close to home and a very old fashioned feeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This place has it all. There is a dirt "track" around the ball-field side where you can run, walk or bike. There are picnic tables on both sides and 3 or 4 ball fields on the newer section. There's also a really nice play ground on the new side. On the old side is the old railroad, a creek (which the kids LOVE to play in), plenty of trees to shield the heat on a hot day and lots of picnic areas. It's a great place to have a birthday party or a picnic.

“It is an old time window”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Very beautiful. Please don't forget to visit the museum. It helps to know how people live in old time. I came together with my son's school field trip.

“The City In The Country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Old Poway Park is a great place for a picnic, to play, to visit the museum and other buildings that are open for the public to visit. Check on the train schedule and when the farmer's market and art sales are scheduled. Stop at the Hamburger Factory for something to eat too!
