This park is a lot better than many people give it credit for, especially if you have children who need a day in the sun. If you love nature walks or biking, they have the Ten Points Trail that takes you through a very scenic nature trail along a running river (usually sporting some little furry creatures). If your in... More

This is a cute local park well kept by the city, but the gem of it all is the bike/jogging path which is about 4 miles round trip and beautiful!!

I have been here several times as it is very close to my home. In the start it used to be clean and well maintained but then in last summers I saw that the dog owners were not cleaning their dog's poop. Which made the park very filthy. But recently when we visited it was back to its original condition,... More

It's a decent, reasonably well maintained family park for the most part. The only major things are the carousel and the fishing pond. Other than that you can have a picnic or party, with a permit of course, or just walk around. There is a softball diamond, but not sure if it's for public or just league use.

This park is great! They have a dog park with one side for large dogs and one side for small dogs. A wonderful Carousel that only cost .25 per ride. There's a pond with ducks and a small area with farm animals. Also a snack bar that serves food. If you want to pack a picnic lunch there are also... More

I have 3 girls ages 1, 7 & 13 and they all have fun here. The farm has a great location for the toddlers to play. The playground also has a toddler area, my 1 year old loves the toddler slide. My older girls love climbing the spider web looking rope climber. The restrooms aren't that bad considering it's a... More

Big area for a small park. Food vendors are open in summer. Feed the geese, ride the paddle boats, walk the dogs, ride the bikes, walk the trails, watch a softball game ride the beautiful historic carousel for just 25 cents or just chillax!

This used to be a good zoo to take you children to. The city couldn't afford to keep all those animals. I used to go there when I was a child and it was the best for my family, Miss all the animals.
