Located close to 78 and close to the Red Mill Museum. One of many hang outs for family. The park is clean and not as crowded, at least whenever I went there!

Only 10$ to get in and you can swim, picnic and run around. Great family stop if coming up route 31. Great place for family to burn off steam. You can camp and kayak also.
