Family Celebrations, kids can play at the playground, young adults and adults can play basketball. Large open areas for other activities. Walking trails for exercise. Must rent the pavilions early in the year, especially for larger functions and in close proximity to recreational areas.

A great place to get out and get some exercise. The walking trail is nice and has markings along the way to let you know how far you have gone. Also has nice play areas for pets and kids.

Over the years I have gone to this park for various reasons: take the kids to the playground, walk the walking path, visit the farmers market, attend events at the park. I have always had great experiences here. This is a very nice public park....More
