Woodward ParkWoodward Park sits on a 300-acre site on the south bank of the San Joaquin River Parkway between Highway 41 and Friant Road.
It was the late Ralph Woodward's wish to provide the city with a regional park and bird sanctuary. His estate provided 235-acre to the city.
Woodward Park is really a great place in Fresno to bring your family.
It has 3 children's playground, picnic areas with barbecues, several lakes and streams, a dog park and several miles of multipurpose trails which are part of the San Joaquin River Parkway.
This trail is part of the Lewis S. Eaton trail system which when completed, will be 22 miles of paved path extending from Friant Dam to Highway 99.
We bike on this Lewis S. Eaton trail from spring through fall along with many other Fresno residents. It is really a great place to walk, jog or bike.How to get to Woodward Park? Take Highway 41 north, exit on Friant road. Take a right at Friant, Left on Audubon and a right into the park. Admission into Woodward Park is $3. It is money well-worth spending so go!
