I love this park during the Christmas season the light display is beautiful and during the summertime it's a great and safe park to take a walk or run.

I walk the bike trail, it’s just over five miles, well improved trail, wonderfully shaded for most of the walk. Well signposted from the campsite office parking area. It’s free parking.

Held family picnic in park. Rented a shelter. It was supposed to be clean when we arrived but it was not. The rest was OK. Bathrooms were far off from shelter. Good parking. Clean grounds. Clean area.

Grandson graduated from High School and the celebration was held in this park. Great facility for picnics, open air games, and long hikes. Area covered in high pines, etc, so the sun is avoidable if necessary!
