Huge park with baseball, football, pickle ball courts, lake and play structure. Lots of things to do. Loved the playground, it has a variety of things to do for all ages. Lots of benches for parents to sit on. Tons of ducks in the lake and they come right up to you looking for food(they have a machine to buy food for .25. My grandkids loved it.

As the title suggests this park has it all. There are multiple baseball fields on each side of a beautiful lake. There is also a peewee football field and a large playground on one side. On the opposite side there is a large grass area with 2 soccer goals. There is a very large Inline hockey rink that is brand new and has stands and a scoreboard. It is fenced in and is adjacent to a set of basketball courts with all brand new goals.

There is a new parks and recreations building near the larger baseball fields and a nice bridge over the water. This bridge leads over to a set of tennis courts. There is also a large disc golf course that runs throughout the park. There is an outdoor amphitheater as well. There is a large covered area next to a few grills where you will often see a picnic or a birthday party.

Fishing. The fishing is fantastic here. It is a fully stocked lake. From March through August they stock it with 2900 catfish a month. They also routinely stock trout. You can also catch some good sized largemouth bass, sunfish, and even some carp. You can occasionally hook into some turtles or crawfish.

his park has anything outdoorsy you could ever want to do and it is well maintained. It's my favorite thing in bowling green.

Turn right, before the airplanes, then take the next left and follow the road to the back to find the largest (fenced in) children's playground in town. (The small playground in the front isn't what I'm referring to.) There is also a large pond with ducks that many people feed. Something fun to do with kids and near most hotels on Scottsville Road area.

This was one of the first parks we went to after moving to Bowling green, Ky. It's huge! It was very clean and you can picnic, fish, feed the geese, and play on there fenced in playground. It quickly became our favorite park.

We took our boats out early in the morning, and had a great time...Inflatable boats, kayaks, canoes, and other non-motorized boats are permitted...In the state of Kentucky, all persons under 18 must be wearing a coast-guard approved life vest while using watercraft, and persons over 18 must have one available within reach...Fishing is permitted from a boat or from the bank...The water is clean and clear...The lake is a decent size, but not large enough for a high volume of use, so as more and more people arrived, we decided to wrap it up...It's a nice facility and it was a lot of fun...The surrounding area (outside of the park, restaurants and such) is a bit old, and it shows, but the people are generally nice.

My husband comes here for fishing and I like to watch the birds and just relax. It’s well maintained and when the weather is nice people are enjoying it. Though a lot of people come here, I wouldn’t say it’s ever actually crowded.

Fishing, walking, playsets for children, in-line outdoor hockey rink, ball fields, a lake, clean restrooms, and more. A real treat for locals and visitors. The park is conveniently located off Scottsville Road near the interstate and across from a KOA RV park for those traveling who want to stretch their legs.

An awesome place. Nice area for a picnic they do have grills. Today noticed 3 birthday parties going on. The playground will keep the kiddos occupied for hours. And feeding the ducks is always fun.
