#161: Cartier Park

“Its quite simple and has a children’s playground.”

#5 in Riley Park

390 East 36th Avenue

For Kids


For Adults






Final Score


Cartier Park is the sort of dull, unimaginative park that every city has — the type of place first mentioned in a local newspaper when it got its official name in 1928, and not mentioned again for another 17 years. There’s a small flat field passable for T-Ball or children’s soccer, a few benches, a playground and a few tall trees for shade.     

However, that playground is perfectly good to bring kids to. While it’s old, there are four separate structures that will work for all ages, with the highlight being a vintage series of tire swings that can be walked on or through.
