This park is a nice neighborhood park, with baseball diamonds, a community center, basketball court, and jungle gyms for the kids. There is also a walking path (cement) that you can walk the circumference of the park (about .9 miles per lap), so if you are out of town and need to exercise, this place is safe to do, but like any place, be aware of your surroundings. As a woman, I would only do these walks in the afternoons when others are doing the same thing. It is a large enough park that the back can not be seen from the street, so its best to walk during the day. The paths are kept clean and during the softball season, the walkway are lit up, otherwise, they are dark at night. Saturday and Tuesday mornings are farmer's market days, so its a great place for breakfast too! Lots of great vendors - if you're a local, you'll love the produce and fruits, travelers will love the California feel of it all, the ethnic food (Thai, French, Mexican, American BBQ, Salvadorean, and Peruvian, etc.) at great prices.

Too many dogs for me. Most were on leash, some on very long leash.

Wilson Park a nice little park for outdoor fun. . . It has 3 or 4 softball fields which are also used for soccer practice as well. The park also has several tennis courts, walking paths that circle the softball fields. There are a couple of outdoor basketball courts, a play area for the toddlers. There is an area for sitting and enjoying a picnic that surrounds a very some little lake where ducks and birds gather. There is also a indoor roller hockey court as well. I generally usse the park for my daily walks from my house. Seems to be family friendly, safe, and well lit at night too. . .

It's a local park for the locals. Nothing crazy or outrageous for someone out of town to drive to. Wilson Park is just a park that feels large and close to home. The City does a great job keeping it clean.
