Glorious space for peace and renewal
Sep 2021
My only complaint is that so many more people know about this park that didn't
before -- and it can feel more crowded on the weekends now. In all seriousness, there are so many trails and parts of the parts to explore. In September, just after Ida, a few trails were closed but it gave me (and on my second visit, my husband) an excuse to explore different parts of te park. There are so many pavillions to reserve for family spaces. Several historic trails, including the John Rogers house which describes historic families and historic architecture of the area. There trails off trails to find little quiet spots. The September 11th memorial is a place for reflection. Crowded enough to go solo, quiet enough for renewal. At other points of the year, there are gardens and different types of shrubery, foliage, and plant life that you can get a unique experience every time. I am unclear whether the boathouse is in full service, but during the summer there is paddleboating and kayaking on Mercer Lake with tons of wildlife. Some times of the year, there is bird nesting. All of it is just grand.

Large park with great trails and varied landscapes
Jun 2021
This is a pleasant place to play sports, get exercise, have a picnic or just spend time. The lake is large and lovely except for the power lines marring the view.

Variety

If you embrace the outdoors, there is a lot of variety here. The outdoor spaces support organized sports, walking, biking, and boating activities. The parking lots are spacious. Rangers drive around to patrol the grounds. The immense green space is impeccably maintained. The whole area serves as a nice respite.

Peaceful, relaxing and beautiful
Mar 2020 • Solo
I live closeby and make it a point to walk or drive through the park. It's huge, beautifully maintained and offers a variety of activities. There is a tennis court, ice skating rink, boat house, dog park, various softball fields, entertainment stage etc., not to name the hundreds of deers roaming around. A must see destination.

Great walking trails
Jan 2020 • Family
We went here last month on that gorgeous day that it reached over 60 degrees. We went for a wonderful walk down over by where The boat House Marina I believe it is, is located. There was a wonderful trail that we followed that lead us to some bald eagles that we were able to watch. Also it wrapped around and brought us to a picnic area that also had an area for a jungle gym for the kids. It really is a great Park and it looks like you can have parties there too. Definitely looking forward to going back and will maybe even think about having our son's birthday party there this summer.

Something for every outdoor enthusist
Aug 2019
This park provides baseball fields, dog parks, trails, pavilions for private parties, boats, kayaks, bikes, and acres and acres on which to do whatever it is you like to do. The trails are either paved or through the woods and all seemed well maintained. We enjoyed our day at the park and know that we will be back again.
