The playground is large, colorful, and has a variety of options for kids of all ages. The swimming area is wonderful in the summers too. The biking and walking trails are easily accessible and there is plenty of parking.

Our Family loves this park. There are tons to do and we go 5-8 times a month. The kids really love the play area and the swimming pond. Season pass is very reasonable but get there early if you want a spot in the shade.

It may be a great park but the people who hold events with loudspeakers & music turnedup are totally disrespectful to the people who live in this area. No consideration. That we might want to enjoy our backyards. N
