We were in town visiting friends and decided to spend the afternoon at the park. This was a perfect spot to wear out our two and three year old. They spent a lot of time on the playground equipment. Then we finished off our visit with a train ride and a nice cream cone.

Park has many walking and biking trails. Swing sets and water fun for small children. No fee to get into the park. Small parking fee. For a nominal fee you can rent bikes and small water boats.
Many locals bike to the park or run the trails. Food concession stand near the water.
There is a fragrance garden as well.

You can rent tables under the many covered atpreas for parties.

Large fields for outdoor games,

If you are not from this area, it is worth your time.

I have lived here for four years and find this park, by far, to be the best attraction. There are paved walkways, lakes, playgrounds the kids love, and small water parks. There is a little train that rides around the park that is great to do during Halloween and Christmas. There is a place to get ice cream and snacks, a Botanical Garden, and a lot of open space. There are pavillions for parties or picnics. You can rent bikes, canoes, or kayaks. I just love it there!
