  • Giant park with lots to do for everyone! There is path that allows you to walk around the entire park, 4 tennis courts, a football/track field, play set for the little ones, a beautiful garden and much more be explored!
  • When I Google it, it told me 90 acres. More like 9, but the trails are nice and the flowers are pretty. There's also a lot of squirrels that will eat out of your hands. A cute park.
  • Beautiful park right downtown. Large kids' playground. Walking path circumvents the park. Gorgeous trees.
  • It's an awesome place to get out and relax and it's big enough you can get into the woods and be away from everybody. There is an awesome jogging Trail all the way around the park as well and it's perfect for meeting up with friends because its location is in the center of Salem
  • Excellent place to walk around, and the rose garden is wonderful when in bloom. Also a Hotspot for pokemon go!
