“Adequate but not the Greatest for Kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

It's fine, but I think there are much better parks for children. Not a lot of shade near the playground and there were some shady characters walking around. I don't think I'd come to this park again if there was another option available,

“Cute Western Themed park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is such a nice park with museums and fountains and nice open space. A common place for dog walkers and families. They also have a train that runs on the weekends.

“Nice Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Small park primarily of interest due to the Hamburger Factory Restaurant, weekly farmers market and short round the park train rides. Some picnic tables and occasional craft fairs.

“Close to home and a very old fashioned feeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This place has it all. There is a dirt "track" around the ball-field side where you can run, walk or bike. There are picnic tables on both sides and 3 or 4 ball fields on the newer section. There's also a really nice play ground on the new side. On the old side is the old railroad, a creek (which the kids LOVE to play in), plenty of trees to shield the heat on a hot day and lots of picnic areas. It's a great place to have a birthday party or a picnic.
