There are always games being played on the sports field every day of the week. If you are looking for quieter hours to use the park; weekday mornings and evenings are the best time to explore. The playground is gated so parents you can feel more at comfort with letting your kids run around here.
WALKING IN THE PARK
The park has plenty of parking space and pathways to walk even if you don’t want to take advantage of the many state-of-the-art sports facilities here. The loop is a great place to walk and has an amazing view from the peak of the ridge along Vista Hermosa. Benches and tables are available to have a bit to eat or relax after exercising.
FULL-SIZED SOCCER FIELDS
The two soft-turf synthetic soccer fields are great for soccer or football. The fields are well lit and are generally under the lights until about 10pm most nights during the summer. Fields are often scheduled for practice, especially during the summer months and they may not always be available for use. Generally earlier in the day during the week later at night are the best times to find an open field to kick the ball around on. The two 120 yard fields are great for full 11 vs. 11 games, or just a small touch or pick up game.
Baseball fields at the park are often used for kids t-ball and youth leagues, but are also a great place to practice throwing, or hitting some batting practice. There are two fenced fields to practice your skills at, or play a fun pick up game at.
