We loved the different skill levels for each age group as well as the padded flooring surrounding the potential hazards. This park is beautiful, well designed, and clean! There was a gentleman there during the afternoon picking up trash and keeping the place clean---amazing!

This a wonderful place for children of all ages. There is plenty of shade for the adults as well. Our 5 year old could play here all day if we let him!

One of the best parks around and worth the hour drive to go there. We had 6,9,14 and 17 year old with us and they all found something to do. There are clean bathrooms, water fountains aims, shade, and eating area. Great place for families!

The blooming petunias, Impatients, and other flowering plants, rows of lovely vegetables, boxwood hedges, and the perfectly manicured lawns are such a wonderful place for a romantic stroll.
