We frequently visit for a family walk, picnic as a date day, teen ministry outing, or just a quick visit with the grandkids to let them run and play.

The park has free twilight concerts Sunday nights in the summer that are a local favorite. Bring a chair or blanket and pack a picnic; you won't be disappointed. The park boasts playgrounds, ice skating year 'round, and boat rental in summer. It is a fun place with kids or just for a quiet walk around the pond.
