Named for the Spanish word for "enchanted," this mid-city emerald oasis lives up to its name. 200 acres of no-fee picnic areas and nature trails afford family entertainment. Minutes away from the business district, it is a great place to bring your lunch. For the kids, there is an amusement park called the Enchanted Island, a playground and a swimming pool for their entertainment. Older kids and adults enjoy lighted basketball courts, handball and racquetball courts, softball field, urban fishing, and paddleboats or canoes. Find golf nearby at the Encanto municipal golf course, or the Executive Length course.

At my last vist half of the "public"? park was taken over by a Hispanic birthday party. The droves of people were loud, drunk & littered the park.
I wouldnt waste me time nor subject my family to a return visit.
I had to park 6 blocks from the park. Many of the streets are posted NO PARKING.
