  • Very cute park. Not very large but good for a short walk. Perfect for families. Very close to shopping and restaurants.  more »
  • Great park, we stumbled upon it while walking around the city. Nice to see the tin man representing Oz.  more »
  • Happened to stumble upon this park yesterday and loved it! It is a very well thought out park, from the 4 statues, meandering paths, Emerald City Gardens (my favorite part - so many types of flowers and plants!!), Dorothy’s playground, baseball field and basketball courts. It is a lovely place to spend some time if you’re in the area!
  • This is one of our favorite parks to go to. We have a two year old who loves to swing and this park has at least six swings available for little kids. Even if you need to wait for a swing you rarely wait long. Probably three or four slides to choose from but careful metal slides can be a little fast. Park is a good mix of older equipment and newer equipment but everything is in great shape. Even on a sunny day the park remains fairly shaded which is a plus.
