I've played disc golf here several times. Decent park wedged between a lagoon and some trees and bushes. Stay out of the bushes. This is a hook up spot for men who want random and/or anonymous sex.

This little park is often overlooked. We had kids parties there because they have a terrific wooden play structure for kids. The lake is beautiful and you typically don't even notice that the freeway is alongside the lake on the other side. It can be...More

I live by the park so I tend to walk this park on almost a daily basis. While it's a nice place to walk during the day, I would not even attempt to walk it at night. There is no lighting in the park and...More
