Beautiful park, lots of walking trails and even places to bike. Lanscapped and has wildlife and a pond. Dog baggie stations and plenty of trash cans on the paths, there are grills and picnic areas to use. It's staffed by volunteers mainly so I wish people would follow the law and not smoke here then throw cigarette butts on the paths, both are illegal and it's hard to clean up after lazy people like that.

Gorgeous! It looks like there used to be a path all the way around the small spring-fed lake, but the city hasn't maintained it very well. Maybe an organization would like to pitch in and clean up the area a bit The restrooms needed attention, otherwise the place is beautiful with a wonderful greenway for walking or biking! Loved it!

This was my first time with my wife and kids to come here for the pumpkin patch. The activities were fantastic, food was great, and best of all my kids were very happy and loved it. I definitely recommend bringing your family here. The staff is friendly, and will give you more information about other events throughout the year.
