There's a really cool slide here that's worth making the trip for alone. Young kids, and adults alike, will love it

Fun slide for all ages. Bring a paper bag or piece of cardboard to make sliding down easier. If you don't, you will likely get stuck midway.

Overall this really isn’t a great city park. It’s not very clean and there’s not a lot to it. While we were there the local news channel was there doing a story about the city’s plans to redo the area, so changes may be coming....More
