Memorial Park has something for everybody, with accommodations for swimming, tennis, soccer, softball, mountain biking, road biking, walking and running. In the arboretum, you'll forget you're even in the city. On the 3ish mile running loop, you'll find excellent people watching, plenty of room, and one of the few places in the area that are well-lit and safe for running at dawn and dusk.

Well I must love this place because I am here twice a week early before sunrise. It is a great place to run or walk during the week. The weekends get a little crazy but it is a great place to people watch.

It is a very big city park with running trails, outdoor bike trails, golf club, baseball fields, and tennis courts. It is not different with other city parks in other cities.

This park is great for parking. It has about a 2.5 mile loop. There are always lots of people jogging in the morning. There are lots of things to do in the area like golf, tennis, biking, and working out. I am sure that there is more to do here, but this is what I like about the park.

The xoo is located here which is not super expensive, the parks are nice and groomed, also visit the waterfountain at the entrance. The gardens are a nice place to relax or just stroll through.
