This is a great family park. My family and I love visiting the farmers market every Tuesday. The park is clean. Their swimming pool is small, but wonderful.

We spent a few hours walking around this gorgeous, relaxing park. It had forests, ponds, gardens, a zoo, sports fields, a mausoleum, and more. The variety was just wonderful. I wish we had brought a picnic lunch with us.
