Some were closed for the season but the one we visited was clean & well maintained with a lifeguard on duty. We also rented a surrey bicycle and rode to Perry's monument.

A very nice, peaceful, clean park. 2 members of our party rented bikes from the Yellow Bike place & the workers were extremely friendly and helpful.
