  • Lovely neighborhood park with spots perfect for a picnic. We were visiting the neighborhood and took a stroll through the park to see the trees in bloom.  more »
  • Ravenna Park is great for a walk almost anytime. There are many trails and paths that you could take depending on how long you plan to spend. There are parts that would be great for a picnic.  more »
  • If you don't mind the mosquitoes, and you want to feel like you have escaped from the city, then you just have to experience Ravenna Park. Owls, rabbits, coyotes, hawks, eagles, raccoons, and all types of birds. This is a great place to take pictures. There are all types of huge trees and flora. The trails are clear and I recommend comfortable clothing and shoes while visiting, because it will make your visit much more enjoyable. If you're quiet I think that you'll be amazed at the things you can see here.
  • Solid greenery park with some nice paths. Just as a heads up, lots of interesting characters yelling interesting things. Probably wouldn't be a place I would wander at night solo personally. We used the picnic shelter which was nice with old chimneys and cooking structures (as in pretty to look at, not to use). Lots of tables for our group of about 40. Close to the university, it was easy to find and had a good amount of free parking in mini lots.
