First Ward Park
- Open Now
Beautiful & spacious area to relax with family, play games in the field & or sit with a good book. The splash pad is now open & so much fun for the kids, or really whoever likes to enjoy a fun sprinkle on a hot day! The views of the neighboring buildings in the city are nice as well!
READ THIS PARK AREA doesnt seem like its patrolled enough there are bums transients everywhere we counted eight and then we left so we didnt stay for about 10 minutesbecause they were walking around talking to ustalking to each othertalking to themselves including washing their hair in the water fountains laying on the benches and under any shade they could findjust needs patrol we did not feel safe at all! Homeless everywhere! Needs government assistance This park could be very nice to have a family experience with modern atmosphere jungle gym waterfall!
Very nice urban park but there's a huge homeless issue in this city. The local government needs to help these people find housing and employment. Only because I'm from NYC I wasn't too taken aback. I was able to enjoy a nice picnic with my family
Nothing special. A small park, kids can run around, small walking path around.Not too many options for kids. Unfortunately, there are lots of homeless. Scary feeling! Also, try to avoid using the public restroom located in the park. Don't know the woman's restroom, but the men's restroom is dezastruos! Homeless inside cleaning their clothes at the sink, dirty inside, smells disgusting and empty bottles (alcoholic drinks) on the floor. An interesting thing is the air quality station with a smart flower solar. Unfortunately, even this station is missing the info display with air quality results (information).
First ward park is gorgeous.. perfect for a picnic or to lwt the kids play. Safe clean and a beautiful view of downtown!
