  • Great walking. Lots of squirrels 4 dog. Picnic benches n playground. Very peaceful n inviting park. Good parking too.
  • Great place to walk and enjoy nature and history at the same time. Lots of picnic tables and playground for the kiddies. Usually plenty of parking unless there are large events being held.
  • Perfect for a morning run!! You can take laps round the park. A must see if you like history . Lots to learn and see. It has many places to grill and a small theater for presentation .

  • Great place for kids to explore. Nice picnic facilities for large groups. The loop is shared by cars, bikes and pedestrians. Excellent place for running or walking with a friend without having to watch out for traffic. Also a decent birding spot.
