The water is clear as can be with a bit of a current. No shoes needed (and I hate icky toes). Our 1 year old sat in the water and played by our feet. Our four year old "explored" with her dad. Free and fun! And snow cones are next door.

We walked across from where we were staying at Oakdale Park to see the river and enjoy a treat from the snow cone stand next to it. There is also a little miniature golf course near the river. We walked along the river and watched youngsters and their parents enjoying climbing the rocks and playing in the water.

This park is beautiful. It is right across the street from Oakdale Park where I was staying. I have been there before many years ago but now they have a great running path along the river.

Fun, my granddaughter loved this. However it upset her that there was so much trash around. When taking pictures she wanted to make sure she wasn't by any. She is 8 and made several comments about why it was there and how come no one picked it up. Though other wise a very cool place to see.

This is a place you will come back for years and years, it is amazing to take pictures of the kids as they grow. It is free, and very unique.

Not what we really went for, but ended up being a nice diversion on a Sunday morning. Nice long walking trail, plenty to see at the heritage park, too

Big Rocks park is really neat and the kids liked climbing the rocks and seeing the tadpoles. There is quite a bit of trash in and around the rocks that could use a clean up crew.

Great place to stop by especially with kids. Huge rocks by the river. Certainly worth stopping by and getting some photos.

There isn't any information at the park, at least that I could find. Big rocks about 20 feet tall that you can pretty easily climb on. Right by the river. Bathroom facilities except in winter. I saw lots of kids having fun. Free.

That was fun - our grandkids has fun - hoping from one rock to the other. We went after dinner - before sunset - was very nice. We saw families with ice cream just setting together having fun.
