Location Description:

More of a city unto itself than a measly little park, this massive expanse of green grass and asphalt offers every recreational activity under the sun. Bird Road's Tropical Park is home to an equestrian center, basketball courts, soccer fields, batting cages, a boxing center, four lakes, picnic shelters, bike trails, baseball diamonds and everything else under the sun. There's a two-acre dog park, too. Hell, Santa even makes his home here in the wintertime at the on-site Santa's Enchanted Forest. Can you blame him?
