This park is excellent. It has a stocked fishing pond that the state keeps fully stocked with all kinds of fish year round. It also has pavilions with tables, grills and electric that can be used for large parties. It also has a doggy park within were you can let your pet run free and play with other doggies.

There are few places that you can feed the ducks, see fish jumping, and see vultures around. The loop around the park is about a half mile- very easy and enjoyable. This is my favorite park in the city.

This facility, operated by the county, has an indoor pool with locker rooms and workout/weight room in addition to the park, pond, playground and mini-golf outside. They offer different types of exercise classes. Fun swim time is by reservation only, to ensure the lifeguards are not overloaded - good plan! It's all free to those who live in that county... More

This is a great place to take the family for a fun afternoon. You can feed the ducks, fly a kite, kick a ball, or just do nothing while the kids play on the playground. We always enjoy a round of mini-golf at no cost.

It has toys for kids, an indoor pool, a free putt-putt course, a walking path, tons of trees, and a huge lake to fish. It is great for the whole family. Take a picnic and make a day of it.
