Park was just a pocket park so time allotted to go see the park was too long; takes about 10 minutes to see statue and read inscription.

My children and I just happened to drive by and find this gem of a park! The playground is suitable for young children especially in spring when it is not too hot. There are walking paths, people jogging, biking, and the view is beautiful!

There is not much else to this area except for a very nice park area with a playground and the Alex Haley statue. The statue is impressive and has a great amount of detail. It is definitely worth the drive to snap a couple of pictures forthe scrapbook.
