  • A very beautiful park with tons of pokestops! There are no concession stands or bathrooms that I could find.
  • Awesome time, great place to spend the day. The water balls are a blast!
  • Better in the winter than the summer. In the winter you can skate on the pond, which rocks! There is also a huge bonfire to warm yourself. Summer time, you can rent a canoe or paddleboat, which is fun, but the Canadian geese poop all over the place and unless you watch very carefully where you are going, you will end up with a nasty green mess all over your shoe!
  • Beautiful. Love skating in the winter and boats in the summer, it is well maintained.
  • Excellent park that you feel safe wandering during the day. Amazing views.
