This is a nice park, with a concrete hiking trail around the lake. There is a splash pad for kids and fishing available at the lake. There is easy access to the lake for fishing. They have paddle boats and canoes for rent.

Beautiful park. Set up great and planned for the future. We didn't get to do all that was there, but the kids loved the water park and playground area. Hoping to do the swan paddle boats next time!

If you are in the motel area near the freeway, a river walk runs from the main road to the park. Walk as far as you want in this scenic little park. We did the walk in the morning because we discovered the path after we had walked some very boring roads near our hotel.
