It's a great park to spend a few hours... More

Nothing I didn't dislike. It was fun for families. We walked to the park with the family. Spent some time enjoying the shaded areas and laying some games.

We live within walking distance of one of Carlsbad's best parks. It's a huge place with tennis courts, basketball courts, softball fields, soccer fields, lots of spacious grass fields, playgrounds for the little guys and plenty of parking. What more could you ask for? It's well maintained and a real jewel in the city. In the summer they hold several... More
