“Love this park!”

Foot trails, bike trails, lakes, streams, what more could you want in a city park? Canoe and sailboat rentals are reasonably priced and the amphitheater has a lot of good stuff going on. Love it!

Just an all around very nice local park to walk around and take in the natural scenery. I wouldn't recommend running the long trail around the lake unless you can handle tons of roots.

My husband and I love coming here because it can be pretty uncrowded with a pretty 2 mile loop around the small lake. Canoes, kayaks and new peddle boat rentals add variety to our stay. Love the rocking chairs off a screened porch when it's not rented. Some good concerts at the ampitheatre and comfortable setting. Nice playground area for kids and trails for pets. Looks like quite a few fish there often. Clean restrooms and grills available with picnic tables in the shade by trees. Small sandy area by lake with geese and ducks.

well-stocked with catfish, clean restrooms and friendly staff.
Lots of shad and many free concerts on weekends.

This is a great park with lots to do right in the middle of everything. There are many trails through the park and around the lake. There is a nice playground, picnic areas, boat rentals, fishing areas, and such.
