  • Nice walking path around the pond. Great playground area for kids, basketball and tennis courts. Plenty of fee parking during the week, may be tight during summer even events.  more »

  • This is really one of my favorite parks here in the area. It is quiet and peaceful, very nice for watching turtles and a variety of birds. It is always well-kept, easy and relaxing to walk the full loop around the pond. The playground is extensive and has a lot of options and variety for kids so that there is plenty of space. The playground's astro turf was delightful. Felt like walking on a marshmallow. There is a public swimming pool, but I'm a little confused with the hours of operation since it has always been closed and the water level low every time I have seen it. There's a baseball field, a basketball court, free parking... but always my personal favorite is the little waterfall under the bridge that you always see in pictures. My wife and I came here for wedding pictures.
  • Very nice location and plenty of parking available. A very good option to bring in kids. The field for adults is very wide open and mostly available.
