You will get constantly harassed by beggars and bums. They litter all over the park. Not much fun to utilize if you can't do it peacefully. It was a little scary after dark with not much lighting and the same harassment.

This downtown park is just one square block but usually has some kind of activity going on. In the summer, the fountains are going for kids to run through and in winter an ice rink is brought in for skaters. There are homeless people around,...More

Acacia Park is part of any trip downtown. Once you have walked up and down Tejon Street, the park is a good place to sit in the shade and have a cold drink or a sandwich from one of the close by restaurants. We went...More

I'm not from around here so I found this park kind of 'adorbs'. I found it a nice little spot to relax, drink coffee, grab a sandwich, rest from shopping, take photos... and otherwise chill - something I, admittedly, don't do very often. Recommended.

It was an ok park, kept up nicely, but there were a few homeless people hanging out, and the atmosphere was just ok. Maybe not the best park....

Found out there was an outdoor Ice Skating Rink at Acacia Park...it was Great. The kids & adults loved it & it was not expensive at all. They didn't want to leave. Wish it was a little bigger, but it was Great.

Trees and walks and Uncle Wilber Fountain (in the summer time) right downtown near good eating (from Skirted Heifer and Jose Muldoons to Subway). Craft and food vendors often in the summer. Yes, there is the occasional homeless person...

A nice little city park marred by homeless people sleeping under trees and pan handlers all over the place and who knows what going on in the controlled substance market, especially when it starts to get dark. A civic embarasment.

We came across this park by accident. It has some art sculptures and a cute water fountain for kids. Has benches to sit and just watch the fountain and relax. The only negative thing is walking the streets around here , there's quite a bit...More
