The Park is well situated and offers a great view of the Canal. Nice place to sit, relax and enjoy. The kids with BMX bikes were out in droves enjoying the park. Great community.

This is just a small park along the bike trail. But it is really fun and pretty. There is also an awesome bike park near here and totally worth checking out. It looks like a ton of fun (unless you are on a recumbent LOL)
