Well maintained area which is great for photography. Always a nice place to drop in to have some outdoor time- possibly alone, possibly with some kids playing!

Kids were everywhere! Packed during spring break. So much to do, everyone was getting along, fun for big and little kids. Teens - no so much. Our little ones want to keep going back. Worth it, we grabbed some ice cream and stayed a while.

I've taken my daughter here several times for imaginative play. There are no swings, slides, etc. You use your imagination!! They have a good walking trail & lots of statues for the kids to play on. We enjoy it as an occasional spot to play. It is a fabulous park to take pictures! Definitely bring your camera.

Visited on a recent family trip to Tyler. Though the day was cloudy, grey, and drizzly, our 2 yr-old enjoyed the space to explore and play.

The whimsical statues of playing children, teddy bears, and colorful creatures offset the serious and beautiful memorial statues. The trees, streams, and waterfall offer a peaceful setting in the middle of the busy city.

The restrooms were the cleanest I've experienced in a public park. This care extends to the maintenance and upkeep throughout the space.

This is a classy, "hidden gem" where I would return and recommend to others.

This is a small gem of a public space, dedicated to the memory or honor of youngsters. Easy walkways meander through trees, gardens, waterfalls, ponds, sculptures and benches. Nice small play area for kids. A very fitting tribute to children, both living and too soon taken away. Nothing "creepy" about it to anyone with a heart. One of my favorites is "Pop's Tree", dedicated to the memory of an obviously much-loved and admired family patriarch by his grandchildren. Close to Tyler hospitals, near downtown, and next door to one of the oldest school buildings in Tyler. In Azalea Trail area. Great place for play, taking pictures, short stroll, or reflection.
