Gardner Junction Park is a unique park as this isn’t the traditional park but is amazing for history. It may only be an acre, but has several exhibits with history under a structure and then more reading along the walking path. This is the start of where the Santa Fe, Oregon, and California Trails split when wagons were traveling west.

Westside Park – It looks like this park is mainly used for its baseball fields nowadays. This 11-acre park has four baseball fields kept in great shape. The basketball is mainly just for shooting and is not even a half-court. The sand volleyball courts look okay, but haven’t been played on in a while. There are four traditional swings and two infant swings. While there are restrooms, they are only open during games. There is a shelter and grill, though I am not sure I would use it as the shelter is a little holey.

Meadowbrook Park – Nice little neighborhood park with see-saw-like features, monkey bars, swings, and slides.

Brookside Park – This little play area packs a punch with 3 slides and a few climbing features. There is a parking lot with no restrooms, a shelter, one picnic table, and green space. This park connects to the other greenway system for walking and running.

Gardner Lake – This is a park that is all lake, it does have a boat dock, ramp for your boat, a few shelters near the lake and below the dam, and a grill. Great for fishing and getting your own boat in the water at this 125-acre lake.

Gardner Municipal Airport – This playground is on the city website, but I think it is more for those who use the airport. It is a great way to play and watch the planes land and take off. There is an old-school style bubble, traditional swings, and infant swings, and a basketball made for a toddler.
