This park acquired its name from the 100-foot high sand dune located there. It is a favorite destination for kids of all ages. Steps and switchbacks lead up into the nature area as a trail that provides different ways to reach the top. The trail winds through plant life and provides an interesting and educational nature walk. The top of the dune provides a panoramic east-facing view of the city.

This three-acre park also includes a fenced small children's play area with swings, merry-go-round and climbing equipment. The park has shaded picnic facilities for about 20 people each, an open pavilion and two picnic tables. Restrooms and drinking fountains are also available. Dogs are permitted on leash along the designated walking area east of the tot lot and along cement walkways as posted.

Note that Sand Dune Park has implemented a reservation system for people planning to use the dune for recreational purposes. To learn more about the reservation system, see
