Berrydale Park is a small city park lying in the shadow of Mount Tabor. It provides nice open space for practicing chipping, throwing a Frisbee, or just stretching out. Smaller ones, like this 6.5-acre (2.63 hectares) chunk, are the ideal places to seek solitude. You will see an occasional local strolling through, but folks are friendly. Amenities here include a softball or soccer field, playground and a community garden.
This greenway, located not far from the runway, is a fine example of what open space should be. You will find fields that are perfect for soccer, football, Frisbee, kite-flying, chipping, running or picnicking. You will find facilities for picnics, tennis courts and lighted baseball and softball fields. The name of the park comes from its former status, the Mount Tabor Villa, as a stop along the Mount Tabor Street Railway Company in the late 1800s. No fees to use the park, unless picnic areas are reserved for an organized event; fees depend on the type of event.
