This park is a real disappointment. It's not well maintained, lots of trash on the grounds, the water in the lake looks bad, there is little shade and you have to pay to park.

Just an average park - dry, not much to do. Lots of "questionable" people hang out here, too - - not a great place for families.

We walked around the park. Since this was our first time there, I was disappointed to see that it was not kept up by the city. They could at least water the place and pick up the litter.

I'm reviewing the skate park part of Lake Cunningham only, since that's the only experience we've had at Cunningham. My kids love to skate board and we heard this place was very kid-friendly. It is! They have a lot of rules for the skaters and...More

I went there to take my dog for a walk and was told that dogs were not allowed. We were already half way around the lake to had to finish our walk. Enjoyed the walk anyway.
