Woodward Park is most beautiful in spring; it’s a lush green on the rolling hills. The air is pure and fresh; ideal for walks, jogs, ending with a picnic!

I'm in the park 3 days a week for my walk. Lots of people use the park for family gatherings, walking their dogs, and riding their bikes. The park is clean and so many friendly people.

Hi, In 40 years, I have never seen anyone swimming in any of the ponds at Woodward Park. Also, there are no swimming pools either. I hope this is helpful.
