“Great place to enjoy some outdoor time and walk the dog”
Review of Mackle Park

Originally came here to walk the dog and let the teens check out the park. They have basketballs you can borrow and a massive outdoor covered basketball area. They also have a nice sand volleyball area. If you have younger kids, they have a nice spray ground and a separate basketball area with miniature hoops. The park offers swings etc. and a lake path to walk around. Along the path you’ll find a bridge where you can watch turtles, fish and birds. We also saw an iguana. They have both a small and large dog park equipped with dog drinking fountains

Mackle Park is a great place for travelers with small children to spend an afternoon. The Splash Pad area is contained within a fence with benches around including shade umbrellas for parents (and grandparents) to watch the kiddos playing in the water. It’s a very clean area. The playground is also top notch. We brought two toddlers and they totally enjoyed their time there. Being free is also great!

Our family always makes a trip over to Mackle Park on our vacation. The kids love to play on the large playground and walk around the little lake. It's a nice break from the beach.

What a breathtaking surprise!
Went to Mackle Park for a tai chi workshop with Master Jesse Tsao; which was amazing! On my lunch break I ventured outside & happily walked around the lake where a sweet remote controlled sailboat race awaited my eyes. Loved it so much I stayed to watch 2 more races. The peacefulness watching the toy sail boats
combined with the extreme concentration of tai chi for 12 hours at the Park was a winning combo.
Next time I’ll bring my easel, paints, & canvas to capture the quiet, pretty scenery.

This is certainly one of the best small city parks in the country. They have a new (one year) community center with lots of organized activities like bridge clubs, quilting, yoga, etc. There are pool and ping pong tables for inside play plus shuffleboard, volleyball, basketball (under roof) and bocce outside. There is a small lake for catch and release fishing with a paved ~ one mile walking/running/cycling trail around the lake. Also included is an extensive kids play area and water fountain play circle. It is all free, even to island visitors. You only have to surrender and ID to borrow equipment. The landscape is flat and not that great but there are nice shaded benches and tables. It is a splendid place to get away fro of the heavy tourist crowds. During the winter season there are free music concerts every Sunday afternoon. It is a perfect family spot.
