I took my two kids and my mother out for kayaking and our tour guides were wonderful. They were very patient and under. They gave great instructions and showed us some beautiful nature spots. My family enjoyed the two-hour trip with them. We will definitely be coming back for paddleboarding and maybe even biking.

A great park in the middle of a busy city with lots & lots to do. It will definitely keep you busy the whole day. On our first visit we explored the trails, the sandbar, & a small island by kayak with still lots left to see for our next trip. Can't wait to start planning.

The park itself is huge and has so much to offer. There is a ton of picnic areas, trails for walking and biking, a beach area, scenic views and so much more. Kayak, canoe, and other rentals are readily available. The park is perfect for everyone including dogs!

I don't get the positive reviews for this place. It was crowded and dirty. Seriously, there was trash everywhere. The beach was filthy. Around every corner, someone was blaring Latin music. I will not be returning.

Have visited park several times. Each has been great. Park is clean and a beautiful view. Has several bike paths and canoeing. Kids fished and rode bike. We enjoyed it.

There is a huge parking lot, walking and bicycle trails, rental kayaks and canoes. There quite a schlep from your car to the beach if you are brining your food, umbrellas, beach towel and other equipment. You can rent cabins, pavilion for a party. There is a fee to enter the park - $6.00 for our vehicle. I think this... More
