This is a really cool place to bring your bike or just hang out. They have nice hammocks, a good trail along the river, games, and places for shade and rest. Great park.

The Ferris wheel wasn’t running yet but we still wanted to check it out. After you ride the Ferris wheel, you can walk along the river. There is a dam 1/2 mile down.
