    This is not the newest park, but it had been pretty well maintained over time. The tennis and pickleball courts are in good order and there ate plenty of benches and picnic tables for families. The trail is also in good shape.

    This is a great park. Right on the water so you can enjoy the views no matter what your doing. The kids playground is very nice and again the views are incredible. The best part is it's part of the Punta Gorda riverwalk. You can walk all the way up to Lashly Park and all the way to Fishermans Village. This can be a whole day experience We often park at the Lashly Crab House walk the riverwalk (nice because you don't have to cross over 41, you go under it) let the kids play at Gilchrest for a while. Then back to Lashly for lunch. Great parks in general in Punta Gorda.
