It would be nice if the had arrows on the ground so that every one would walk in the same direction like some parks in bigger cities. They need to have a bigger dog park

Nice walking paths, lots of benches and picnic tables, a great play ground for the kids, public bathrooms. You are able to take your fury friends as long as you keep them leashed and pick up after them. There is a parking lot on each end of the main area of the park.

My wife and I go to Ritter Park nearly every day in the summer. They have a nice mile walking track that has a restroom near, making it convenient. Also has a play area where we take our grandson and a picnic area with BBQ grills and tables.

I grew up playing in Ritter Park. I just moved back to Huntington and have been playing tennis at the same courts that I played at 50 years ago. The courts are in much better shape and there are twice as many.

Pretty park, with nice flat walking paths, the rose garden was delightful and there were a few sculptures dotted around , I visited the park on my own mid afternoon felt mostly safe, till a creepy guy started following me, so I didn't stop to read my book as I had planned. It really needs an ice cream hut or... More
