This is a very nice little park set in a upscale neighborhood. There are tennis courts, a playground for the children, multiple animal statues just made for sitting or climbing or being photographed on, a large gazebo, and a pond stocked with ducks and other wildfowl just made to sit and reflect by. It also lends itself to wonderful backdrops... More

It is very peaceful here with many, many places to eat a picnic lunch. There is a great play area for the kids to play as well. There is a little bridge to cross over the creek and many weddings take place here as well.

A delightful place to relax and watch tennis or old tyme baseball. Take in the nice houses that surround the park, enjoy the water features and eat mulberries.

Carroll Park is located on the northeast corner of Groveland Road and Park Avenue. It's a peaceful place to take your children to play and enjoy a picnic lunch. Visit the enclosed pond to see the ducks, take photos of the kids on the cement animals, stroll across the bridge over the ponds, and enjoy some wildlife (squirrels, birds, butterflies,... More

The Old Tyme baseball games are great. The pond is relaxing and the picnic area is set-up nicely. If you want a snack the mulberry trees will provide that.

This park was designed by the same person who designed Central Park in New York. It has picnic areas, tennis courts, a playground and a pond where children can feed the ducks. It is a nice park for a city this size.

I live here now. I love running here and walking my dog. It is very basic. Nothing fancy. Just a pretty little spot that is filled with happy families, walkers and runners. Pretty trees and lined with pretty houses.

My family held a reunion here a recently and this was my first visit to Carroll park. We rented the pavilion which was had just been finished from a remodeling job the day before. So that meant my cousin had a lot of cleaning to do. It was very neat looking and in a nice area of Bay City. Outdoor... More

Park is centrally located on East side of Bay City with adequate playground equipment, although it seems to be decreasing every year. Good effort put into trying to maintain the duck pond and the old concrete statues. Kids love to climb the trees and play ball in the open field.
