This is a great park for family. Lots walking trails and playgrounds for kids. Very clean and well maintained. Lots of parking. Look out for big events held here, there seems to be areas for concerts and food trucks. Really nice place.

This is a beautiful Park along the Etowah River and a great place to run or walk. The walking path is a 1/2 mile and lighted at night. The park also connects to the park behind the YMCA.

Great park to do all the park activities you expect. Good kayak/canoe access for boaters. Great paved walk/bike/run access that connects to YMCA.

I am not sure. I haven't been down there in a while nor have I heard of it. I would imagine it would be a specific place to fly kites or RCVs (planes)
