A beautiful old park with nice shady areas. Beach is clean but often ( like right now ) you cant go in the water due to run off pollution.

Love this park for walking, biking and even kayaking. Very quiet and peaceful in winter, spring and fall; can get very crowded in summer especially at the beach. Walk along beach Boardwalk then into woods, follow path along the water avoiding horse droppings, so peaceful!...More

The park is enormous. It houses a carousel, a beach, a 9 hole golf course, and has acres upon acres of open field space for cookouts, reunions, and functions. The only drawback is the regularity with which the water at the beach is closed to...More

Hi, it will not let me post a web site on this answer. But you need to go on the Goddard memorial park site and look for the C & L Stables link. That will give you what you need.
