“Summer Cooler”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

We brought our 10 yr. old granddaughter with a friend and they had a ball, dividing time between the excellent playground and the water pad. Very clean, well managed. A great summer escape. You may want to bring folding chairs , as no seating available in the shaded pavilion.

“Have a picnic!”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

We have a picnic with barbecue sandwiches at this park every time we go to Florence. The Tennessee river is flowing slowly by with romantic river boat paddle wheeler blowing as they go by. Grab a table near the river bank. Take a blanket and enjoy!

“Free Admission, plenty of free parking. What more could you want?”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

The biggest surprise is that this is a city park that is open to the public. The Spash Pad is wonderful for the kids on a hot day. The water jets are large enough to entertain even my teenage children. The evening light and music show was worth our trip alone. The music played all has a connection to the Shoals Area. I heard well-known songs I never knew had a connection to the Shoals. The light show was incredible and my children stayed until after closing.

“Mainly for kids only”
Reviewed 16 August 2012

This is a newer park in Florence. The trees are not mature so there isn't much shade. The main attraction is the splash pad for children. Very noisy so unless you like kids, stay away.

“Fun for the kids and whole family”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

We love visiting this park. It accommodates large groups if you want to have a gathering for church or family. It's always clean and there's plenty of parking. One of the best parks in the Shoals.
