About the Park

Big Bend Park is a neighborhood park with some features of a nature park. A tributary of Holes Creek runs along the southern edge of the playground. The park includes a small wooded area to explore, trails to follow and a bridge. If you climb the stairway you will find yourself walking on an old railroad track bed. This section of the railroad track took a sharp turn to the west, which explains the name of the park. Play equipment includes slides, climbers, belt swings and infant swings.
