Attended a soccer game. Was very impressed how clean, groomed and inviting the park is. A wonderful playground climbing area for younger kids (maybe toddlers to 8 or so. Sand area for digging and lots of paved stroller and walking paths. Very nice.

This park made me wish I was a child again. I've never seen anything like the playground that people call "The Castle". It's an all wooden structure that consists of swings, slides, a fort, a ship, a car, a sandpit where you can dig for dinosaur bones, places to climb, places to hide, and it's all connected by ramps and catwalks. This is definitely the best part of the park.

The 58 acre park also has 4 lighted soccer fields, 2 batting cages, 4 lighted baseball fields, picnic shelters, volleyball area, 2 horseshoe areas, kids gymnastics area, and 3 miles of paved walking trails around and through the park.

If you are passing by or through Gastonia you really must check it out. If you are traveling by car with kids this is the perfect place for them to burn off some energy to make for a quieter car ride when you leave.

I take my dog for walks at this park. They have multiple great walking trails that go around / between the entire complex. They have pretty extensive playground for kids in the shape of a pirate ship, multiple ball fields, multiple soccer fields, and I believe a volley ball court. It is well maintained and I love taking my dog here.

Great fields! Plenty of parking and easy access. Have to watch out for foul balls with the distance between fields. Great park overall!

Martha Rivers Park has something for everyone. Walking trails, soccer fields, softball fields, batting cages, covered shelters and benches throughout the park. There is plenty of parking. I only noticed on restroom which is set aside from the park, a little distance to walk. The play castle is the highlight for younger children. It's pretty much self contained with few exits/entrances; so you can let your child run freely as long as you watch the exit. Thee is plenty inside for them to explore. I love the idea of the floor being a spongy material so if there is a tumble or fall, it's a softer surface to fall upon. Hours are usually sunrise to sundown. It does get crowded when the ball fields are in use, but still a wonderful place overall.

My 2 year old granddaughter loved the park. She likes to climb so the toddler area was perfect, safe enough for her to do on her own with me nearby but not impeding her independence.

This park has nice fields, we play soccer but the baseball fields and playground are nice. The is the second time we have visited the park from out of town. Do not and I will state again Do not go into the bathrooms. This was the worst bathroom I have ever been in, that includes gas stations and I travel a lot. There was feces in the floor. The smell was horrid. No toilet paper. It was so gross that this time when I visited we stopped before we got to the park. Another member of our team had to go in today and it was awful again and no paper, smell was awful. Do not let your children use this restroom or go in alone for any reason. Sad because this is a very nice park and the facilities are not being taken care of. Go to the restroom before you go to the park.
