There is a paved trail around the pond with a bridge to an island gazebo. There are many events that happen here. There is a skate park, and a kids play area with nice footing. There are several tables with grills available and shelters to rent. There is an indoor ice rink but the public hours can be a little... More

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.

Great family park. The walking trail around the pond is paved and wide enough for two-way traffic. The organized evening summer concerts offer variety and relaxing atmosphere. The kids will love the two play grounds and the duck feelings. And there are paddle boats available, too!

This is a very nice park with a lot of options over not too much space (for the number of things here). My 4 year old daughter loved going to the skatepark and thought she was a big kid skateboarder by the teenagers with boards. Also my 7 year old son enjoyed shooting soccer goals on a field right below... More
