This video from Debbie shows a couple of dogs playing together next to the baseball field.

The best place to park is along South Meade Street. There will be plenty of spots for anyone wanting to visit the park.

On the western side of the park (along South Meade Street), there is a sidewalk leading to a shaded shelter. There is a picnic table and a couple of benches. You’ll see a trashcan here, so please don’t litter!

You’ll see a sign about the park being named after James Taylor and a memorial of Ginny’s Garden. It reads “In memory of Virginia L. Pings Taylor, April 17, 2000.” There are lots of pretty flowers here underneath some trees.
