Great in the morning hours to run, walk, jog and such but horrible in the evenings. The dog park is great, large enough for almost any dog. Might want to avoid in the weekend as this can definitely be a busy time, with multiple parties going on all at once. Football games, forget it, very busy. However, all-in-all, the one... More

Very quiet in the morning. Really crowded in the evenings. People jogging. A lot of squirrels, rabbits, ducks and sometimes a raccoon. Very clean, fresh and convenient.

Al Lopez Park has been around for as long as I can remember. It's a great park for adults and for kids for running, walking, working out (there are workout stations along the main trail), picnics (plenty of green to setup a picnic but also picnic tables), etc. There are also playgrounds. I miss the big castle playground thing that... More

This is a great place to exercise, play and picnic. Something for everyone to enjoy the great outdoors. Plenty of sunshine and shade. Great for large or small events.

Lots of birds in a convenient location with good parking and restrooms. White Ibis are tame, lots of egrets, warblers, boat-tailed grackles, etc. Didn't see an alligator. Long, smooth joggling paths with exercise station stops along the way. A fine resource if you live nearby or need to exercise while on a trip. The park appears safe, but I have... More

Great place to take the kids for a walk and play. The shelters are great for parties and the river is right next to it.

Park has GREAT kids play areas. Diverse crowd. Very crowded on weekend. Stay away from dog park area. (Lots of untrained dogs) Plenty of parking, lots of open areas and picnic areas. Community center and bathrooms. Still feel a little uncomfortable there sometimes if park is not full.
