  • The Park is beautiful and much visited. The good: calm, beautiful manicured lawns, exercise machines in good condition, clean bathrooms, nursing, parking and free access. Unfortunately the design of the Park does not cover routes or exclusive circuits for pedestrians or bicycles or others. The bad: access allowed for pets and lazy dogs who defecate and urinate anywhere. To improve: in addition, earliest twinkling later in winter time, to encourage people working. Uncontrolled irrigation generated water and mud that drains at the lane closest to the drawer of the river. It would be appropriate to transplant more mature trees that generate the urgent shadow on sunny days. The illuminated signs could give practical information such as the time. forecast of weather, etc. Recommendations: bring at least water since there is only a cart (mobile commerce) located at the entrance that sells water, soft drinks or other foods. Also use CAP and sunscreen to protect themselves from the Sun.

  • Awesome! Picturesque, great for jogging, biking or just walking. Bring a picnic and some sunscreen! Some places to sit and some grass mixed in along the canal/lake. Note- No BBQ's or alcohol allowed. Open till 6 in the winter, till 9 in Spring/Summer. Take advantage of good on-site bathrooms and recycling on both extremes of the park. Some parking out front as well, but neighborhood not the best for leaving a car unattended. You will not believe the breathtaking views for sunset! :)
  • Great park for running, walking or spending the day with kids.
  • Beautiful park is quite large for the great outdoors

  • Well, I work here, and from that I love the Park is a quiet place and insurance details are missing and more shadow since the trees are small but mediated that time go grow and will be passing a place more pleasant to stroll and spend a Sunday family... Recommended total!
