“This Park has it all”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

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.
