Perez Park at


Perez Park was once an idyllic retreat from hectic city life and home to many areas where families would picnic or simply relax in the sun. Now it is a Hazard zone that heroes must be level 7 or above to enter.

The tree-lined walkways meandered through the park and were often populated by couples taking romantic evening strolls. The Gaiman Amphitheatre showcased outdoor performances (including those by the acclaimed 'Paragon City Players').Turner Lake provided a lovely splash of cool blue water, while the nearby Bendis Lake House was popular among the crowds for their famous burgers.

The previous tranquility of the area has been shattered. Perez Park is now infested with many different villains-all with varying agendas. Not only has the area become a favored spot for the dark rituals performed by The Circle of Thorns, but Vahzilok, the Clockworks and others are often spotted there. The biggest problem the park has, however, is that it's become a hotbed of the gang wars in Paragon City.

Two groups of thugs, the Hellions and the Skulls, have focused their conflicts here. Both of these gangs are connected to more powerful organizations, but no one has been able to conclusively determine their benefactors. One thing's for certain, though; anyone caught in Perez Park at the wrong time is likely to get caught between these two vicious groups during one of their many skirmishes.

Exploration Badges[]

Badge tourist 01 Around the Bendis

This old boathouse used to be a popular spot in Perez Park, but since the gangs moved in it has been abandoned.

Location: The easiest way to find this badge is to first go to the Justice Avenger badge (see below). You will need to jump over the wall to enter the park once you get there or enter the park at the gate and stick very close to the wall as if you were following the road. You'll find the rustic boathouse on the edge of the water with a couple of docks jutting out. Walk along the dock to the door of the boathouse and the badge is right in front of it. This is the Everett Lake orange zone area.

Badge tourist 01 Avatar

Avatar, a hero in Paragon City in the late 1950's, had a statue erected to him after his death. The gangs have not been kind to this memorial.

Location: This is in the southern orange zone at the very border with the red zone. In this zone you'll easily find Everett Lake. There is a large island in it. Travel through the channel between the island and the main land. Entering from the south part of the channel is easier to find this badge. At the midpoint between the Everett Lake and Gaimon Woods markers, there is a battered statue half in the ground. This statue is mostly on its side and quite crumbled. It looks like a knight holding a sword. The badge is near this statue and the tree to the right of it. It is only a few feet out of the water.

Badge tourist 01 Doc Whedon

This old dock used to be the most popular make-out spot in Paragon City. Today, however, it is more a place of violence than love.

Location: Start in Everett Lake at the channel between the large island of the orange zone and the main land of the red zone. Travel the waterway into the forest staying inside the border of the orange zone heading NE. You'll come to a square dock with 2 lamps on it which leads up to the main land. The dock can be covered in level 10 Clockwork.

Badge tourist 01 Justice Avenger

This fountain was a gift to the city, donated by billionaire playboy Justin Sinclair.

Location: This is an easy badge to find because it's not inside the forest. When you enter the zone, travel along the road as far as you can to the SW. At the end is a 3-tier fountain. Jump in the bottom shelf of the fountain and the badge is under the water.

Badge tourist 01 Territorial

The territory around this bridge has been hotly contested turf between the Skulls and Hellions for some time now.
