I took a lap around the park on my morning walk. It’s a little north of downtown and away from the busy streets. It appeared very well maintained. There were a large number of picnic tables with bbq grills, shade trees, parking and tennis courts. It looks to be a good park for lounging, walking, jogging, or dog walking. I... More

This park is centrally located and offers plenty of shade to get out of the heat. It's always been clean and safe when we have been there.

Ruth Hardy Park is my favorite park in Palm Springs to take my dogs. It is a large park, clean and safe.

Large park not too far from the main drag. Good place to take your dog for a walk. If you're looking for an off-leash dog park, there's one right next to the airport / next to Civic Offices, with a large parking lot.

We have walked around and through the park a number of times while renting nearby. It is fairly clean, with attractive landscaping, a fitness trail and tennis courts. Need to add pickleball courts!

A really nice clean park with great tennis courts, nice playground and basketball courts. Plenty of water fountains. Too bad all the nice grass is dying b/o water restrictions. Never crowded.

I spent some time at this park while awaiting a Mid-century modern cocktail party at the Abernathy House, one block over. The neighborhood is lovely - the park was clean, and well cared for.

This is a nice little park where you can do many different activities. There are many benches and picnic tables and if you like tennis there are many courts there as well. It was a great place to walk through and enjoy the activities going on around us.

During our 5 day stay we tried various school playgrounds closer to our hotel and finally headed to tripadvisor to find one that wasn't locked behind fencing and gates! This park was great for kids both young and old as it has the playground, basketball and tennis court, and a trail all the way around the playground- many older kids... More
