Not so much a park as a long, narrow stretch of green space that runs north and south between Country Club Plaza and Westport. There are very nice walking/running paved trails that run thru the park as well. On the South end of the Park...More

Nothing great or outstanding in this park. It is a nice area just off the Plaza. We have used this parks walking train, but not so much in the evenings any longer. Sometimes there are many youth hanging around in the evenings pestering others.

Lovely park on the edge of Plaza. Lots of room to walk and run with the beautiful Plaza scenery. Especially nice in spring time.
