Great park for walking, riding bikes, kiddos have a wonderful playground with covered seating for parents. There are restrooms and picnic/concessions, but there was a big crowd for an outing and we didn't go to that area.

From the picnic area, to the ball field/open grass areas, to the walk/run/bike tracks/trails, to the playground equipment, to the basketball court, this park is fun for the whole family. One could spend most, if not all of, the day here, just chillin' and relaxin'....More
