  • Visiting from out of town. This is such a nice out of the way place. You'd miss it if not for locals.

  • My husband and I love this park! We usually just walk around the lake, but it is a safe, beautiful and enjoyable place to exercise and chat. I have also had the pleasure of attending a barbecue there! Nice place to bring your family for an afternoon, with clean bathrooms.
