  • I've been comin here since my oldest was 7 years old, he's now 28, I love it here, we always have a great time.  more »
  • I 100% recommend this park for a date or family outing location. You can hike uphill (significantly steep) or drive all the way up the mountain and park (paid parking). Either way, the view from the top is incredible and there are picnic tables and rocks to sit on while you enjoy it.
  • I had a birthday party for my dad here last year and it was the best decision I made. We got there early enough to secure a few tables under the huge gazebo and there was plenty of grills. The water doesn't stink like I expected a pond would and the sand is SO soft. I would definitely recommend this pond for family gatherings or just to bring a towel and relax in the sand. Even when the parking lot is packed the beach doesn't feel crowded.
