  • Great park for a picnic, tossing frisbee or walking your dog. Wide open spaces, picnic tables. It can be hot on a hot day with little shade c  more »
  • Weekend usage appears to be heavy but you can avoid most of the crowd by taking the trails through the arboretum.  more »

  • Awesome place for anyone that has a big dog to run their energy out and socialize with other dogs... Biggest park I've ever been to besides golden gate park in Frisco!! I barely experienced a quarter of the Park while I was there. A lot to do there besides the dog park. Walking trails , giant Arbor garden, as well as jungle gyms for kids. All around awesome place to go!
  • It was amazing to be part of such a great event. The Great Reno Hot 🔥 Air Balloon 🎈 Race. I had the awesome time. Plenty parking outside the park if you don't wanna park inside. The charge is just $10 dollars 💵 and you have to walk. No bad for a morning stroll around the park. You must get the there around 3:30 am to be able to be the first ones in. Lots of place to park your 🚙. The early the better for you to find a confortable spot to see the entire show.
