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!

There is so much to do there. There are several different places to play for all ages. Everything is clean and doesn’t look worn. It can get very crowded on weekends, so be prepared.

Common Ground is great but there have been many, many car breakins the last two months as reported in SpotCrime. Please lock up your valuables.
