I always enjoy going to Woodward park. There's always a quiet place to practice my photography on my step daughter or anyone willing to pose for me.

If you want some motivation, visit the Woodward Park. All ages from small kids to senior citizens doing some activity. They have plenty places to seat down and enjoy the scenery.

Spent an hour walking here, best part is a little redwood grove with a stem running through. The Japanese park-within-a-park is nice but only open very limited hours.

Woodward Park is huge--especially considering the fact it is in Fresno. If you get the chance go there. It is not a typical park, there are ponds, lakes, wildlife, great walking paths and beautiful trees. You can also find some shade for lunch or just...More

I've been going to Woodward Park as long as I can remember. I took my children there starting as babies. Back then there were only two to tiny play areas. I've enjoyed Family Reunions there, group get-togethers, family picnics, charity events, and even a few...More

My daughter needed to complete several miles of hiking for a field biology class and this was a nice place to hike. We were surprised at all the different areas within the park (lots of hiking trails, stage area, party area, kids play area, etc..)...More
