Recreation Grove Park, the largest park in Willits, sits at the corner of Commercial and South Lenore Streets. It includes a stage, arena, covered picnic tables, restrooms, barbecues, a food service building and a playground.
Willits City Park is downtown across from City Hall. Under a canopy of trees you’ll find a playground and the Centennial Monument, the latter dedicated in 1988 in celebration of Willits’ 100 years as an incorporated city. This park is also the location for the weekly Farmers’ Market during summer.
Babcock Park, the smallest park in Willits, is off Hwy 101 adjacent to the Frank Howard Memorial Hospital. There you can stretch your legs under the trees by the fountain, and, should you wish, enjoy a picnic lunch.
Frank Grasse Dog Park, located on E. Commercial St. next to the Willits Skate Park, is a free, off-leash dog park. It is fully fenced, open from dawn until dusk, and offers shade and water.
