“A sad deterioration”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I grew up across from this park, and I walk my son's dog there every now and then (he bought his grandparents' house), and I'm greatly saddened to see how this once beautiful park and golf course has gone to seed.

“Chirstmas Lights at Goodwin Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Went to see the Christmas lights - great display to take children. Lights and drive were excellent and money goes to support a great cause. My grandson just loved itl.

“Visited for a fund raising event (golfing)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

The park and golf course is in very bad condition. I don't believe that any grounds keeping exists. The park is owned by the city and it needs HELP!!

“Danger, Will Robinson”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

There are many safer parks in the metro area. The Farmington Valley would be my recommendation.
