“want to people watch? This is the place.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

What a great place to just drive slowly around, the buildings are dated back many years. Always something going on for the entire family. They have car shows, mineral springs, spring water springs, just bring your empty jug. The golf course looks so green and well kept up, just watching the golfers play is so relaxing.

“Tranquil”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

When you enter the park, weather you take a stroll, bike ride, or sit on a bench, you feel like you are in a different world. So peaceful, tranquil, and so much history. Bring a water jug to tap from its natural springs, its namesake

“Get Pampered”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Just a beautiful place built during President Roosevelt's term. They don't build them like this anymore. They are renovating the spa. A fun place for a mineral bath.

“Definitely good place for strolling”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

As stated that this park is definitely one of the best parks to visit. It is very cooling and good for strolling, be it alone, or with friends or family or even for dog walking. You can drink the spring water too

“Great for snowshoeing”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Came here ove the weekend while my boyfriend and I were in town visiting his parents. We snow shoed around the golf course, and there were also others cross country skiing on the trail. The park was beautiful with the snow falling, and they did a god job marking the trail so it's identifiable. The warming hut was also nice to warm up and dry off after the trek. I'd definitely recommend stopping here to take in the winter wonderland view.
