Most parks are good for picnickers and unscrupulous Frisbee collectors. But Perkins Road Community Park amps up the adrenaline factor for thrill seekers with a grab bag of exciting sports, including skateboarding, rock climbing, BMX racing, and rainbow-trout fishing. A extreme sports–themed community playground keeps kids occupied, whereas competitive folks cycle to nowhere in the velodrome—one of just a handful in the United States—or spar on sand volleyball courts. More traditional recreational offerings include tennis courts, walking paths, a soccer field, and a baseball field.
