This park offers something for everyone. It has a lovely pond and a nice walking path all around. The grounds are maintained very well and they have lots of attractions including ball fields, boating, picnic sites, playground, a skating rink and more. It's very scenic and serene, and I've enjoyed each visit I've made there.

My husband and I have been going to this park almost every weekend since May. We go there to do our walking (training for a 50K walk). We like how clean and inviting it looks and all the people seem to be enjoying themselves there. It has a nice kiddies playground and also picnic areas where you could reserve to hold a little party or so. Oh yeah lots of ducks in the pond.

This is a great neighborhood park!!!! It is perfect for a family park day or afternoon. The park is clean and the equipment is very well maintained. There is plenty of space to just grab a bench or put down a blanket and relax. They also have great summer concerts on Sunday afternoons. Its perfect for the family or a date, pack a picnic dinner, bring some lawn chairs and enjoy the free music. There is a great walking/jogging trail. There is a fenced playground area for smaller kids and a regular sized play area for older kids. There is a skateboarding pit. There is also a paddle boat rental area. My kids and I love when the summer season opens up and we can spend a long afternoon at the park. There area also fireworks on July 4th, but get there early if you want to stay for fire works and make a day of it as parking gets very challenging late in the afternoon.

My family and I love this park. They have updated play ground equipment with a great rubber cushion under the equipment. My daughter, 2 1/2 loves it. We even feed the ducks in the pond and had a picnic lunch. They have areas available for rent with grills. There is also a walking trail around the park. We love this park!!

Always have a good time here, go almost everyday. There is just so much to do here from walking to the playground to just hanging out.
