Ritter Park extends for four city blocks. Filled with a wonderful playground for children. It's walking /jogging /biking path extends beyond the four blocks, making it 18 blocks long. Two picnic areas, the latest built this past November. Great sledding in winter

When the Pokémon craze came along, we hopped on the bandwagon and went scouting for the little guys. This park was full of them! For those whom aren't into that, the park is really nice. Walking paths that are all paved and big open areas.

What a wonderful city park here in Huntington. Lots of great places to walk, play with kids, or just set and relax. If you're in the city and want to "get out" this is a great option.

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.
