This park is great for the whole family. We love to walk the path around the pond, watch the ducks, cormorants (in the winter) and beautiful egrets, night herons, cardinals, blue jays year aound. This is a great place for taking photos plus there are always people fishing. Nice play area for the kids and many places to picnic .

If you're looking for a park with a great variety of things to do to entertain different ages, this is the place to go. The playground is big enough to accomodate lots of children, with the soft padding to keep them from getting hurt. There are picnic tables and bbq pits in the shade around the grounds, as well as a pavilion and gazebo. My kids love to visit the goldfish pond and free putt-putt range. There's a big lake with a pier for fishing and plenty of sidewalks and a trail for bikes, scooters, jogging, etc. There is a rec center (indoor pool) that we have not visited. Not only have we enjoyed visiting as a family, but we have also participated in large group events at the ballfields and basketball courts. If you're looking for a great picnic spot or just need to let the kids burn off some energy, you definitely need to visit this park. The grounds are extensive, so if you're not quite sure where to park, just drive around a bit to become familiar with the different sections of the park. By the way, there's a dog park right next door.

Every community should be blessed with such a nice park. There are walking and jogging paths, a pier that extends over a lake stocked with trout and catfish, many picnic tables with grills, restrooms, ball fields, swings and other playground equipment, and a recreational center (which we didn't use). This is an extensive and well-used park. The community leaders deserve praise for their foresight.
