Great place to go to a ball game. Complex is well maintained and we'll lighted for night games. Good stands for spectators as well

This lake area could use some improvements. Has a lot of potential if the City would improve it. Very active area in the summertime. Baseball fields, playground, etc. Could use more picnic areas, a walking track around the lake would be wonderful.

Lake Kirby is not a good example of a recreational lake. The best lake that has clean water and close to Abilene is Lake Coleman about 45 minutes away.

The park is more in reference to the ballpark where they play baseball and softball and they have a playground.

NICE PARK! Went to see little league game. Park was clean. Liked the area. You can see the Lake as the sunsets on the water.

This is probably the worst park I've ever been to. There is trash everywhere and it is very unkept. The lake is a joke. It's more like a pool where all the runoff from Abilene goes. Seeing people swim in the lake gives me the heebee jeebees.

The city uses the parks up front for kids softball and they are nice fields. As far as the lake, well its a big mud hole. Seems not long ago a guy shot another when he caught his wife in a car doing well...things. So much for a close lake to hang out at. The roads are dangerous to see... More
