We came into the park as the sun was setting, which was quite beautiful. The park is under renovations, so besides the balloon ride, there wasn't much to do. But the balloon ride was worth hanging around doing nothing. While we were up, we saw the fireworks at Disneyland and all the lights across the area. It was spectacular. A... More

What used to be a great farmers market now is a gauntlet of carney types calling to visitors. Very little produce, homeboy industries gone, very disappointing

Gorgeous park with the best sports fields/grass I have ever seen. Very well taken care of. Great bathrooms and lots of room to walk around. Plenty of parking

The facilities were first rate. Parking was great, fields were beautiful. Restrooms were spotless. We spent two weekends in a row at park at two different Lacrosse events and were very happy to be in such a wonderful park.

We went there for the open market on a Sunday. They need more vendors, and parking worked only if we ignored parking instructions!
