Great Playground and lots of space to run around. Playground was handicapped accessible and created so that anyone, with a variety of mobility issues is able to interact with the equipment. My kids had a great time!

Very pleasantly surprised when we visited this park! It is huge, very clean and well landscaped. The pavilion was very nice, beautiful flowers and shrubs, a stream full of water plants and, I think, some small fish. Concerts and fireworks are also on the schedule....More
