I take my dog up here 2 to 3 times a day. Meet the same people/dogs. I feel safe going alone at anytime and during the summer/fall the restrooms are open. Great parking. Love this park!!!!

This park is across from an elementary school. It has a big sledding hill in the winter, lots of open space (fields), and play equipment.
