Stockstill Park is very popular park and is a hub of activities for adults and children alike. The park, which sits along Roark creek, hosts softball and tennis leagues for all ages on its two softball fields and six tennis courts. Two large children's playgrounds can be found crawling with kids most all the time. Throughout the park, four separate covered pavilions are a popular community place for family picnics. A 1/2 mile paved walking trail surrounds the park. Public restrooms are available. A lighted soccer field and our newest feature, a skate park, can also be found in this 62 acre park.
The dog park looks nice but now that the base ball fields have grown over I think it would be cool to expand the park over to the other side to but I know with how often floods happen it would be hard to include the small creek like I've seen other dog parks do back in Colorado. I mean now its just a massive plot of land, why not expand the child's play ground or just expand the dog park. Heck set up a cemented into the ground ability course and construct trails through the woods? If the city wanted, look up Bear Creek Dog Park and you'll see what I mean.
This is a great park! There is a really nice playground with some picnic tables and there are fairly nice bathrooms for a city park. There is no diaper changing stations in the men or women's bathrooms. There is also a dog walking park here that is pretty good size. Everything is very clean. There is plenty of room to throw frisbee's, football's, etc. There are several baseball fields and tennis courts here too.

Great place to walk along Roark Creek with paved walking trails, baseball parks and large kids playground. Also the dog park is a great addition.
Decent area with some great views. The tennis courts seem to be well maintained the baseball diamonds- not so much. There is a nice dog and skate park.
It used to be awesome but now there's hardly anything for kids and no more baseball fields. Only thing it's good for now is skateboard, basic cycling and kite flying.
