Nice views, not so much to do
This park is worth a visit if you're in the area. It has some nice views of the city, and dogs can run and play off leash. The unfortunate thing is that it's just one hilltop, and the paths just spiral around and around the hill. So it gets kind of boring after a while. If I lived in walking distance I'd probably go there regularly, but it's not worth a special trip.
It is a nice spot for taking pictures, taking a deep breath, doing a "320" degree look over the city, enjoy the night atmosphere. I find it boring in regards to walking my dogs there. It is a lot of asphalt (bad for dogs legs if you like to play with the ball or catch frisbees), many people not caring about the hill itself, chasing their dogs up and down the fragile hillsides and not caring about the pretty challenging selfmade trails. You pretty much walk up or down a paved trail, depending on where you start walking. You can go into the grassy area if you feel like it. You must have good balance and good judgment when doing so. If you chuck a ball and it goes to far, it either goes down a steep washed out hill side, or down the hill onto the street if you got bad luck. There is a lot of glass on the pavement and people usually don't interact. I sometimes went there after work and my dogs did not even want to get out of the car. I still go back once in a while, because I want to make it work, but the dogs just don't like it. They walk like old dogs with no energy. Parking is terrible and people don't seem to care about picking up the poop. It is a lovely place but boring.posted: September 22nd, 2008
It's a great big hill!
It's a nice area for pups to run around off leash. There aren't any bells and whistles about this place. It's just a lot of open space. It does have a great view of the city though.
