Wonderful place to play sports and just walk or bike along the paths. Years ago, I played tennis here. Vast amounts of green to be enjoyed and many baseball games to watch

I went with my daughter to celebrate one of her classmates birthday. Staff super friendly well connected with the children. They got the opportunity to touch the animals. Safe environment, later one we did a small hike around the place. Really nice!

On an unusually warm day in October we had a lovely picnic in the park. We watched the children play soccer and sat near some barbecuers. We then took a majestic hike though the woods to end our perfect day. A must go

APEC has many nice programs for young people. There are also good trails to hike on the APEC property. The trails are good for birders too. APEC is a gem of a community resource.
