The Martin Luther King Jr. Park features both landscaped playing fields and natural meadow areas with upland prairie and riparian habitats. It is known for being home to Walnut Barn
, a converted barn that is available to rent for parties and events.
The Walnut Barn and playground area are currently undergoing a rehabilitation project, with some wonderful additions and improvements to the barn, and several pieces of new play equipment. Beginning October 12, the playground area will be closed to the public until the project is completed. We look forward to opening it up in the Spring of 2018 for everyone to enjoy.
The park includes a volleyball/badminton turf area, 2 horseshoe pits, and 2 softball fields (which may be reserved
). There is a paved multi-modal path to Ponderosa Ave. and a one-mile dirt and gravel trail that includes two small bridges over a drainage way and climbs the hill to a nice view. There are good wildflower displays here in spring and summer. The park also has a designated "dogs off-leash" area.
