  • Beautiful, expansive park with lots of little spots to sit and enjoy the weather. Access from the bike trail along the river is especially nice. There are lots of picnic tables where families and friends can get together for a BBQ. While I was there, there were two relatively large events happening - with room for everyone.
  • This is a perfect place for a family picnic. Lots of picnic tables and lots trees to shade. There are even permanent structures to shelter you from sun and rain. Bring something to BBQ on the hibachi bbq's that are scattered throughout. Ample parking and a great place for the kids to run around.
