We didn't explore the entire park, but we did walk along the lake and enjoy the vistas. It was peaceful and enjoyable and empty. The park is beautiful (Frederick Law Olmstead).

This is a large open park in the city with a nice cinder and asphalt track surrounding it. All around it’s about 1.7 miles and is mostly unshaded so watch the heat.

I'm so glad I live near this wonderful urban park. Even though it was a little compromised when a foolish city management ran an expressway cutting off a corner of it, it is still a splendid place to walk. I do so often.

If you do not know who Olmsted was, you know nothing of city parks or New York Central Park, because he created both and others in the most fortunate cities. Great for the entire family so bring a ball or frisbee. Bring your pets on...More
