    This park is gigantic. I usually take my dog here for long, quiet walks in the evenings. They have a basketball court, volleyball court, an off-leash dog park, and a giant pond in the middle of the park stocked with fish.

    Did you know? The park is on the site of a former boarding school for Native American children. The school was operated by the U.S government from 1891 until 1988.

    This is my favorite park downtown. There is so much history here. I recommend walking around the former Indian school campus and reading about its history.
