  • Beautiful setting for any number of activities. Do take the time to get a permit if getting pictures done here. Park staff is always present and they are quick to fine those who don't take care of this simple administrative task.
  • Small, but nicely done with pleasant staff. Good for kids as it's small and has open outdoor spaces. Only open 3 months a years, so has a stuffy smell when it is within first couple weeks of opening.
  • Go check it out nice and relaxing place. Not to many crack heads there any more
  • Very well presented. Good to know.
  • Open October through December only. Worth visiting!
