Little did Gene C. Reid know that one day, his name would be synonymous with jumping castles, dog parks and more than 100 different rose varieties. Reid Park is home to not only the Reid Park Zoo and the Edith Ball Adaptive Recreation Center; it boasts a magnificent outdoor stage, the DeMeester Outdoor Performance Center, which seats some 7,000 people if POTUS should happen to drop by for a visit. Then there's Hi Corbett Field, formerly the home of Tuffy the Toro, everyone's favorite horny mascot, and now the home of the national-champion UA Wildcats baseball team. The walking/biking/large-family-loitering trail around the park is popular (that is, when it's less than triple-digits outside).
