Ruth Hardy Park is part of the City Palm Springs.

I liked the red flowers. There were roses as well.

There was a lot of trees and grass. Children could play here with a ball and sports.

There is a statue as well.

There is a lot of parking places.

The playground were playing with their friends on the playground.

A must see!

8 courts in prime condition. No charge for courts. players from 5.0 to 3.0
pick a court where you fit in. Most of the players are really nice. Allows single players to sit on a court when 4 people are playing. At end of the set 3 people will stay on and one person will fall out allowing you to play. Frequent pot luck lunches for all the tennis players to enjoy. Shaded benches in the heat of the summer. Constant play 24/7 in the AM.

The desert gardens are lush and there are plenty of shaded benches. It's very accessible and the parking is easy too.

The local aging jocks who think they own the tennis courts are a bunch of weasels. After my 11 y.o. daughter and I waited our turn to take over a court, a group of them waltzed in after we’d been playing all of three minutes & lectured me on how foursomes have precedence over doubles. They insisted we leave. I get it if we’d been playing for 30+ mins (like all the other courts), but really?! You wanna kick a Serena-loving aspiring 11 y.o. girl player off the court? Go join a country club if you jerks are so important and unable to wait.

Come early to get a tennis court. House rules are sit on court to wait for game. The regulars are friendly and usually willing to play with the outsiders.

It's a public park with grass, trees, playground. Just like I would hope you'd find in most places. Not sure what the big deal is about this park. Most cities with a decent tax base have parks in every neighborhood. Sadly it seems public parks and public outdoor space in general is virtually non-existent in the populated desert areas.

Ruth Hardy Park can always be counted upon to provide plenty of mature tree shade, keeping people cool even when temps outside are soaring. The huge park offers a playground for children, plenty of open grass, basketball and tennis courts. Located just a few blocks off of downtown Palm Springs, it sits amidst the original estate homes of the Movie Colony, near Desert Regional Hospital, and near Desert Regional Hospital's Wellness Garden.

This a lovely, super dog friendly green space that also has tennis courts, a fragrant and healing garden, paved paths, a labyrinth, and a playground. You can also do a fitness course (which is accessible for people in wheelchairs too which was great to see). We enjoyed strolling around this park. And a grapefruit tree in the park has the biggest fruits I've ever seen: grapefruits the size of basketballs.

We walk in this park everyday on our annual vacation in PS. The Park is very busy on weekends and it is wonderful to see the local residents enjoying it so much.

beautiful park, vibrant and well used. Nice walking destination to pick up on the neighbourhood vibe of Palm Springs, bring your tennis racket if you want to raise the heart rate or just your sneakers if you want a nice leisurely stroll.
