My wife and I decided to come here and take a break from unpacking and just eat lunch. It was nice and peaceful here and at the time there weren't many people at the park.

Had no idea this little fort and park was there. It is in a rather seedy area and tucked away but once you drive down into it, past the sports fields, over the bridge it is great! We thought we'd take a chance and go...More
