“Great for short hikes and family picnics”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We use this park frequently for walks with our dogs, and family picnics. The trails are fun and interesting, but can be convoluted. Fortunately, they are relatively short, and packed into a small area, so you really cannot get too lost. The picnic areas are spacious and clean. This is a "bring it in, take it out park."

Reviewed October 17, 2012

This is our family's favorite place to go with the kids > a beautiful spot that is both not busy, yet beautiful with nature around you. Bring the kids with their bikes, kite, frisbee or whatever you like, this place have it all from grounds to trails, to BBQ and tables area, as well as some swings / slides etc. Did I mentioned it is a beautiful place...? :)

“Community Picnics”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Great place for holding large picnics, using ball fields, and not too far from rest rooms. Parking lots accommodate almost all, although there can be a significant walk to your site. Place is spread out so there's no crowding.

Have noticed more and more visitors from NYC, but still enough room for everyone.
