Legion Park has an excellent, flat paved path ideal for walking or jogging. The old trees and green space allow for a refreshing balance to recharge the battery. 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.

too many people for such a small playground area. somne people bring their kids and then dont keep a very good watch on them. a child around the age of 6 came down a pole and landed directly on top of my 2 yr olds head and knocked him to the ground. The playground needs more shade

This is located in the center of town. They have a nice walkway around that is I believe to be 1/2 mile. They also have a water park in summer. It has sprinklers and nice playground equipment. There is also some that are designed for special needs. The squirrels are super friendly and fun to feed.
