“A Big Ditch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

There's a lot of history here, and someone deserves a lot of credit for trying to preserve it. One can see the effort that went into the preservation and restoration, but you can also see the area getting ready to slip away again without renewed interest. Well worth a visit if you're in the area, but don't travel a long distance out of your way.

“Pretty but lots of trash”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

We found this by parking near a stairway near it. It's pretty but there was a lot of garbage in the water, ruined the effect of what could be a pretty walk. Kids went down by the water but came back pretty quick. There are benches and lots of pretty flowers and cactus.

“shady rest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

When you visit the antique shops on Bullard street in Silver City don't miss a stroll through the Big Ditch park.
Lovely shade trees and inviting benches are a rest from the heat. You can take very nice photos there. Also it is always clean.

“Caution!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

Be prepared to be stopped by every panhandler in Silver City. They're all around downtown so keep your cash in your pocket. Watch for a clean cut guy walking his dog, just another scam. The merchants need to clean up this problem.

“Nice stroll, neat history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We had a nice stroll along the creek as a break to walking around downtown. It is pretty interesting how this little park was formed. Make sure and stop by the Silver City Museum to see a nice display on the Big Ditch.
