“An oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Not something what I expected to find in this area. Very nice picnic area, swimming. Available for rental pedal boats and Kayaks and tours. You can spend a whole day relaxing.

“Clean park”

The river area is clean and there is an excellent walking path along the river. Great place to stop and relax, have a picnic or jog. Locals say that the fishing is great as well.

“Great beach area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We enjoyed our visit to the free beach swimming area. It was clean & family friendly, with lifeguards present. There was a place to rent kayaks, or pedal boats.
