Givens District Park


05.06.14 Posted in NE by

I visited Givens District Park (3811 E 12th Street) recently and it’s  unfortunately not a great place to run. There is a large community center, sports fields, and picnic tables and shelters, but because the park is basically a linear tract with parking on one side of the road that runs through it and fields on the other, it doesn’t lend itself to a run. It didn’t feel especially safe either with several adult men milling around in the parking lot alone at 7am on a weekday. Probably not a place I’d revisit. They can’t all be winners! On to the next.
