  • This is my favorite place to hang out with my son in the summer. We love taking pictures of all the flowers and of the muskrats and the incredible amount of Blue Dragonflies that seem to be there. It's so incredibly beautiful. This is such a peaceful place
  • This is a fantastic place to spend a day! We were there with our family of 4 and we had so much fun on the water trying out all the different water craft! Every single one of the staff was so friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back and would highly recommend visiting Bower Ponds!
  • Very nice in the summer. You fish or rent paddle boats. Has a great July 1st celebration. In the winter it offers public skating on the ponds.
  • Nice place great to bring kids as the playground is quite nice. Can be a little crowded though. Picnic tables that you can sit at n lots of benches to sit an take a break. Paddle boats available for rent in the summer are pretty fun but a bit pricy.
  • Absolutely loved it. I ve been only once.tho. will definetly go again.
