Walking is the best form of exercise and Thompson Park provides the best environment. Located in the upper circle of the park is a paved, mostly flat area, wide enough for walkers, strollers, dogs on leashes, bicycles, skateboarders, and etc. to share. The Walking Circle provides a safe and shaded environment free of automobile traffic with flush toilets, water fountains, and benches for resting nearby. If used after hours or during the off season months, it is recommended that you park in the outside lot. The Walking Circle and parking areas are intended to always be maintained to provide safety in support of those who choose to keep an active lifestyle all year.
