We needed to kill some time on our way to a wedding. This place has awesome playground equipment against the lovely back drop of the lake. Free admission. Great park.

For a city park, this complex has evolved to have many attractions. When entering one will notice the "Aviation Heritage Park," where historic planes have been restored & on display, for up close inspection. Then there are the ponds, with the accompanying wildlife, woods, and trails weaving through them. There are always various sports teams playing, with our favorite being... More

For picnics, amateur fishing, county league sports, sunny afternoons in a quiet environment. Just a fun place to hang out. Christmas lighting scenes beyond the imagination.

I love taking my grand kiddo's here. The lake is beautiful, the play areas well maintained and clean. There is ample parking and walking areas. Being next to the air park is neat as the boys love the planes.
