I grew up in Carlsbad, this park has been here for at least 50 years, it is right off of the freeway and very nicely kept up. Great for family picnics or just take a chair and read a book, lots of shade.

Nice local park with easy access and parking. Good place for a picnic, take the kids to play or just want to relax in an outdoor environment. Clean and accessible restrooms. Annual Oktoberfest and other activities.

Many picnic tables and a HUGE tree to sit under. A bit noisy since it is next to the Interstate. Great playscape.

This is an old style park - lots of big trees, grass, picnic tables, ramadas, and playground. On summer weekends it seems to be the site of lots of birthday parties.

It's centrally located, near the I-5 Freeway. Large enough for the October Fest celebration. Ample parking all around the park. It has a playground, gazebo & restrooms. The only drawback, a bit noisy because being near the Freeway.

Great big park adjacent to the I-5 freeway. It has restrooms and plenty of room for birthday parties or family events. It can be a little noisy due to the freeway but many of the large shade trees help to muffle the sound. Aside from...More
