  • Off leash water fun for the pups. Paved and off the path trails going in every direction. You can not go wrong with this place I highly recommend it for dog owners and non dog owners alike.  more »
  • This park is near out house. I have taken the grand kids many times. They really enjoy it. It's a nice, safe neighborhood.  more »

  • Nice rest area on W&OD biking and hiking trail. However, the restrooms are closed for repair and the park have two portable potties next to restrooms. This park have vehicle access with few parking spots. I found electric outlets in the shelter. Stream pass through the park and I am not sure on how safe the water for consumption. Picnic shelter is beautiful and I believe it is open for public.
  • This is one of those parks your kids will remember fondly as they grow. It's perfect for kids ages one and eight. The park has a locked gate and so it's very safe for them since they can't just walk off because of the fenced in area. For older kids, as well as grown ups, there's basement and plenty of run around land
