This park is in great need of regular maintenance. The walking trail is constantly littered with dog doo so it's like walking a booby trap trail. You can't even enjoy walking along and looking at the scenery because you are constantly dodging the piles on the trail. And that is not the only regular maintenance issue that needs attention. I...

If you want to walk this is a great place. If you have children they have age level play areas. There is even a place for dogs in fenced in areas. They have pavilions for rent so a great place for 5k walk events, birthdays and family gatherings.

They have a 2.75 mile walking track, tennis courts, pickleball courts, skateboard area with ramps, dog park area, children's play area with numerous pieces of equipment, many pavilions for picnics, exercise and fitness areas along the walking trail, and even a large conical hill...
