There is a 1 mile track that goes around the park. Plenty of squirrels to watch play. There is a waterpark for kids to run through the water. There is 2 shelters that can be rented. Really need to do it rent them months before your event. Plenty of trees to keep you shaded and a nice playground for children.

We have rented the pavilion for years and years and is perfect for get togethers. They just started charging ($25.00) last year but well worth the money. The parks person was pleasant and helped when requested. The pavilion is always spotless and the rest of the park is beautiful. I recommend these shelters for any event.

The squirrels are plentiful, and friendly (because they are well fed by the regular visitors). The dragon water feature is fun for kids (June-Aug), as is the partially ada friendly playground.

Good park, not the best in town but has a water park area, and not very crowded, compared to other parks, on the older side.

Love Love Love this park! It has items for all the different ages of children and their development. They have a water park if you want to come and cool off during the hot days of summer. The path around the park is a treat for adults who need to get out and stretch out their legs. Not to mention... More
