oops! Thanks lockmat. :)

It looks like you removed your initial post (so I'm not sure what you were asking), but if you are wondering about parks in Midtown, you should check out Baldwin Park...

View Here It has some really huge old trees that kids love to climb on. Also has a jogging trail around it.

Midtown Park is used for events every now and then. People mostly walk dogs there.

Heh, I am a huge fan of the park on the corner of Elgin and Austin, I can't remember the name of it though, and COH is so proud of it, they don't list it on their site..

The only "park" at Elgin and Austin is Elizabeth Grover that was acquired by the COH last year (it's really just an empty lot right now). There are talks to make it a community garden next year.

Yes, that is the name!

Smallest.

Park.

Ever.

Community garden would be cool though.

I just wish they would put a fence around it until they figure out what they actually want to do with it. So I could let my dogs play! It would make a kick ass dog park.........walking distance of a lot of us dog walkers who don't trust their dogs enough to run free at balwin park.

Why not ask the city to turn it into a good sized portion for a dog park? I'm sure the dog walkers would certain appreciate it.

There is an "unofficial" dog park over at Taft and West Gray in the open field behind the school.

Get a shock collar... err, a stimulation collar.

After a learning her new boundaries, my dog never tried t go past the gravel track. And while I kept the collar on her for about a year, I can count on one hand the number of times I actually had to "stimulate" her...

Once you can trust them to run at Baldwin, its a great park... doggie water fountain, plenty of room to play fetch, etc.
