Owner description: City park that offers public tennis courts and free classes to visitors.

There are 8 lighted tennis courts and a great basketball court. The playground is very good. Hint... don't go to play tennis Sunday morning as every senior in Palm Springs is playing mini tournaments. There is no time restrictions so you can wait all morning. There always seems to be a group of guys shooting hoops who are ready to get a game going. Lots of shade.

Ruth Hardy Park has about everything you want in a city park. For an impromptu picnic to just relaxing a few minutes.
The only wish from me is the dog people that don't pickup or release their dogs to run off leash.

Read the great reviews on this park and thought we would check it out for an early evening picnic. The first thing we noticed was all the garbage all over the grass - literally everywhere. There were large groups of unsavory looking people and the families that were there had masses of stuff and garbage spread out all over. It really was a sight. After looking around for a spot we decided to leave. Looks like it could be a nice park without the garbage and unfriendly looking people.

Most people are friendly however a mother son duo quickly changed the nice day with their self declared expert status and blatant rudeness. Watch out for them. Tennis courts are in excellent condition. You will wait for courts in the morning. And although you are told by several to proceed to the court you want to play on and just wait your turn as I said some people are rude and apparently own the court. The regulars who have a very well developed league going are very nice and very friendly. The park is nice and spacious. The facilities are all well maintained. Areas to sit and read, playgrounds, dog park. Etc. come in evening when it is cool- playing time available.

My dog loves visiting all his friends and, as his owner, we've met so many wonderful people too. Beautiful, wide open spaces, great wellness park area, wonderful tennis courts...a gem in the middle of Palm Springs.
