“Watch for bullets.”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Can the city make anywhere safe?
Why doesn't the city let the food trucks stay there all weekend. More people might come and more people might make it safer.

“Nice outdoor surprise”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

This park has a little bit of everything, it's a great use of space. Plenty of walking/jogging track, open green space for the kids, and great views of the lake or railroad. There was even someone playing with a remote controlled vehicle, people really seemed to enjoy it. The concession stand and open table sitting are eating area was clean and well maintained. Weather you go to exercise, play, or just relax in a quiet area, it works!

“I love this place!!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a GREAT place to walk, especially in the early morning or early evening when it's cool and somewhat quiet. The sidewalks will take you on a 1/2 mile journey! Nice setting, with nice landscaping and lots to see. There are primitive exercise equipment and places to stretch along the way. There are even water fountains near the on-site snack bar. This is a great find! Rosemary is planted along the paths. I was tempted to pick some!

“Scenic park”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Clean park with scenic views of downtown. The close-by train yard is also a nice sight. The addition of the Baseball field nearby along with Goodpeople Brewery is sure to make this a great downtown area.

“Great place for a sunny day”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Decided to check out this park since it was a sunny, warm day. Great in town green space next to the railroad tracks if you like trains which I do. Various walking trails, green space for frisbee, picnics, etc. Sandwich, hot dog stand near one end of park. Playground and exercise equipment. Saw singles, couples and families enjoying themselves
