This is an urban park with wide paths, an interesting history, and lots of delightful shade on a hot summer day. Good for everyone, it includes places for kids to play and a canteen at the entrance across from the parking lot. Go and enjoy!

I love coming here. Great views, and bird watching opportunities. See lots of chipmunks and squirrels. There is a lot of history, including a fort, and some other things. Definitely great for pictures. Very family friendly.
