“Nice Park. Has potential.. Been concerned about the night time. Not feeling safe.”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I come here every night to jog.
Lately the water in the lake has been low, and I hope it gets full again because I'd hate to see dead fishes and no more ducks playing in there.

Also another complaint I have is that lately there have been cars with people doing the naughty dance in there and a couple of hooligans smoking out in the parking lot.. I've also got offered weed while jogging.

If mcallen can get a couple of cops in there once in a while to check things out it would be nice before it gets out of control.

“Growing!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Fireman's Park deserves a review due to its recent expansion and refurbishment. Playgrounds, pavilions, picnic areas, walking paths, and a large pond with an island and a connecting bridge. Kayaking and paddle boating are available—but don't be disappointed: for any kind of water sport, the pond is minuscule. New plantings are being established throughout the park, so the overall effect is still one of a brand new subdivision.

“Awesome Place in McAllen”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

The Lake has fish in it. I have caught 4 fish there on a chug bug lure. The fish that I caught were bass. It is only catch and release. The lake is a good size. I go there at lease four times a week. Great place for the family. You can kayak there too, but the lake is not all that big for boating but it is fun to have a place to do that in the city.
