  • Well care and Park safely, very pleasant to go with the family, you have an artificial lake which is navigable, there are places with grass and there you have to ride on the water with the boat.

  • 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!
