Feed the ducks, fish, play on the slides, walk, relax. Nice picnic place. Visit the museum and check out the authentic buildings from by-gone days, such as the post office and the school house. Wonderful attraction for individuals or the family.

park was very nice, plenty of space to play sports and enjoy the Sun- we had our family reunion there and there was plenty of shade, pavilion and even a snow cone joint, to buy any snow cone flavor you can think of, lol - loved my time there

The park is a nice, small park with fun playground equipment and a gorgeous water feature. The ducks were a highlight of our visit if you ask my 3 year old. It was a nice place to let him run out some energy before we got back in the car for more travel.

Fields are GREAT! A/C in the restrooms! Parks & Rec even had a tent at the park for first aid. We ended up using it for blistered feet! Grounds were kept clean. Loved this spacious ball park! Very good job guys!!!! Keep up the good work! We wish we had a park like this in Brandon, ms!!!

My sister and I took my 2 year old nephew out for a summer play day here and he had a ball. The splash pad was wonderful and the playground was small but still fun. There is a pond with geese and ducks you can feed and a sno cone shop by the play area.

This park has duck ponds and a nice playground, which my kids enjoyed, but it was nothing special- just a typical park, in my opinion.

From sunny days to rainy days, there is always something to do at Ballard Park. You can walk for miles around and through the park. You can play disc golf with your friends. You can feed and watch the ducks. Ballard Park is an excellent place to go with families, and friends. There are even pavilions in case it rains.... More

There is really nothing spectacular about this park. The setting is pretty, however. Has a great walking path. Offers lake to fish in and ducks to feed.

We lived in Tupelo for 15 years and this was always my favorite park. There are walking paths and picnic areas and play grounds and even skate boarding areas. A small lake/pond has ducks and their babies. It is well maintained and I try to visit it each time we go back. It is a most relaxing place. At holidays,... More
