Beautiful park. Set up great and planned for the future. We didn't get to do all that was there, but the kids loved the water park and playground area. Hoping to do the swan paddle boats next time!

Nice beautiful park. It was well kept and maintained. Loved the flowers, water and swans. Many things to do: fishing, paddle boats, concessions, waterpark for the kids. Something for all ages. There is a Senior center open during the day Monday thru Friday that serves a meal at lunchtime for Seniors. Seniors may also enjoy activities there such as card... More

If you are in the motel area near the freeway, a river walk runs from the main road to the park. Walk as far as you want in this scenic little park. We did the walk in the morning because we discovered the path after we had walked some very boring roads near our hotel.

Great place to take your kids or to just go for a walk! There is a splash pad and playground for the kids, and in the summer they also have paddle boats to take out on the lake!

One of the best things to do in town, especially if you have kids and the weather is warm. The sprayground is a blast. Even if you don't have kids or it's cooler, this is a nice place to walk around, ride bikes, climb the tower, etc. Well worth going out.

This park is really clean and a lot of the locals were enjoying themselves. The park has a lot of land with lots of neat areas catered to kids, picnics, grilling, and walking. The main draw for me was the observation tower centered in the park. The view of the town is nice after climbing a few flights of stairs... More

This is handsdown one of the finest municipal parks in the U.S. From bike trail to fishing there is something for everyone.
