We've been here many times and have always enjoyed the walking paths through the stunning gardens. The staff must love their work because it is always so nice. We love to walk through the trees and gardens. It has become a favorite of ours.

Pollard Park is an ideal spot to either wander on one's own, with a friend/companion or with the whole family. There is something for everyone - flowers, trees, space, a community garden, a stream flowing through and a plethora of ducks.

A very complete and satisfying park...More
