Went there to fish with a friend and was not impressed by the water quality. It was very dirty and skanky. It did appear to be a nice walking park though.

So much to do for all ages. Only need a few dollars for parking & if you want to ride the kid train. Great place for reunions or family picnics. Playgrounds and a splashpad - lots of walking trails. Enjoy!

A nice park to have a picnic at. There are shelters and picnic tables, several play grounds, a nice lake and a VERY long walk around it.

What a beautiful and peaceful place. You can have fun and play disc- golf surrounded by beautiful scenery and nature. Also a nice place to wake by the lake. We go every year to this park. Can’t wait to go back.

Yes there used to be a rope, many years ago. But then the lake was unsafe for swimming and they took it down. Many years later, the lake is now safe, but I don't believe swimming is yet allowed, but not totally sure... More
