For a small city of 50,000 this is a nice city park w/rides for children on the weekends. The playgrounds are nice and open all week. Be sure your kids ride the antique carousel it's one of the few Dentzel Carousel's that had fully restored.

Taken a few that turned out well. There's a nice fountain, a few little bridges, 2 gazebos I believe... And of course, the carousel.
