  • This is a great park for Billings Heights residents. Has about a 1.4 mile walking path/running track. A dedicated off the leash dog area for your pets. A nice play ground with swings, slides and play set for the kids. There are fish in the lake, I have found fishing to be hit and miss, seems like worms are the best bait to use. They have a large covered barbq/meeting area and a few stand alone barbq's by the playground. There is a fish and wild life service station here. Also has docks for fishing. Oh yea and swimming. There are public restrooms open in the spring/summer with out side showers to rinse off if you choose to swim. Very scenic. This is one of my favorite places to go for a run. Great place to spend a day or a couple hours with the family.
  • Great little place to take the family for a day of swimming or fishing, but they need to fun a way to add some more shade.
  • Great place to take kids if you do not have time to make it to the mountains
  • Great place to swim, have a bbq, fish. Bathrooms, showers on site.
  • Nice park! The only thing is I wish they had more areas to sit and eat.
