Walther ParkThe area between Walther Park and Joachim Creek forms a greenway along the creek that varies in size. Benches placed along the stream allow passive observation of the stream and of users interacting with it. Many walkers and joggers utilized the park road as a 1.3 mile exercise loop. Amenities such as restrooms, benches, and outdoor grills compliment the activities within the park. Parking is plentiful along the roadway that travels through the site and in the parking lot at the southern end of the park. Within the park, mature trees provide an ample amount of shade for playgrounds, and outdoor picnicking.  A recent row of trees has been planted along  Joachim creek that, upon maturity, will provide overhead enclosure along the stream.

Our City personnel has installed the rubber mulch at all of the play areas to help prevent injuries from falls, in addition personnel has installed sidewalks and accessible ramps to play areas, sand volley ball courts, and the gazebo which will allow handicap accessibility for everyone
