    Great place for running after a long day or to relax with friends on the weekend. Go exploring and check out the wooded walkway through the Six Springs Wetlands near the dog park!

    Tennis courts, a swimming pool, a popular dog park, and paths for walking, jogging, and rollerblading are part of the attraction, but many retreat to the park's lawn for a view of the Midtown skyline. Read more

    So much room for activities! Seriously tho, if the park seems crowded there's always a nook or cranny longing to be filled. Best place for frisbee throwing and people watching.
