“Lovely park”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Nice neighborhood park. Very complete with jogging trails and fitness items, kids play areas, a boating pond, fishing and a dog park. There is also a golf course attached as well as wilderness trails, bocce courts and a sensory garden. Worth time for families as well as the elderly.

“Love This Place”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I go to Colonial park constantly with my dogs! They have a great workout trail which is fun to do and breaks up the monotony of the walk sometimes, great for family BBQ's and other outings.

“Decient place to hang out but gets mobbed on weekends.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

A good park to come to. Been going here for 40 years. The paddle boats get crowded quickly so get there early. Some "riff raff" has been slowly infiltrating the park so watch your belongings! Bathrooms are not too bad, better than they were.

“Something for everyone.”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Great place with lots to do and see. Try one of the paddle boats, go fishing, roller blading on the long, level paths, bike ride, toss a frisbee, admire the trees, ducks and birds, or just bring a chair and sit in the sun. Great place to be year-round.
