Very good to go with kids and family on a family reunion or just to relax. Kids enjoy the water park. I visit the Park very often and I enjoy the atmosphere. For me it's so relaxing!

This is a great place to take the family. There are lots of things to do,including ;boat rentals,bike rentals,fishing,walking trails and they even have a snack-bar. There is also a train ride,which I highly recommend for families with children. They have a butterfly exhibit and sooo much more. If you have children,you could easily spend an entire day here.

This park has more activities than most state parks. They have picnic tables and covered areas for birthday parties, BBQ grills, area to rent little boats to take out on their lake, snack area, train for little kids and seasonal events like pla pumpkin patch and festivities during the fall. It's definitely worth checking out to spend an afternoon.

Park is free but you have to pay for parking!! There are play grounds, water spouts that shoot up from the ground, walking trails, and a train you can ride for a fee. There is covered picnic areas with bar b que grills. Just a very nice park!!
