“This park has a little bit to please everybody”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

When it opened it was a walking/jogging trail. Then many more things have been added to the area, like pavilions for eating or relaxing, playground for the kids, tennis courts, exercise stations. All in a very accessible spot and visually pleasing. And they keep adding more to it.

“Awesome Park!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

They are really making this a state-of-the-art recreation area. There's something for everyone--tennis, basketball, numerous walking paths, playground and equipment for kids, alcoves and the latest, an extreme skating park for teens and whomever. AWESOME, clean and just one of the best parks I've attended.

“Great place for walking!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Glasgow park is a wonderful place to walk. I have seen deer come out of the woods, the grounds are full of hedge hogs, squirrels and birds. No exhaust fumes to inhale. Simple, peaceful walking space. Also there is a great kiddie area to occupy the little ones.

“a much needed park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

It is relatively new, but has been so needed in the area that it is often crowded, but it is large enough to disperse to people. It has a 2.6 mile paved loop, a short woods trail, a 50 foot high hill or so perfect for sledding or hill training, skate park, tennis, basketball courts, and playground.

“Bring a sweater and watch for puddles”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Glad it's here and it's very well used, but often muddy and always windy. Hope they plant a lot more trees. Has a lot of concrete and asphalt. Playground is usually crowded and has great climbers. Good walking/biking/running path except when it has rained. With opening of skate ramp, parking is crowded near playground but will get better when the new parking is open to the public.
