  • This park has great playground for kids, but it is never too crowded. There is also volleyball area with sand. Nice surrounding. The only thing they could add is splashing zone. Actually this is my favorite park in Charlotte at this moment! I also like the greenway that is connected with the park.
  • This park has it all. Playground, Hiking trials, a lake, access to the greenway, close to food, and great events all year round. Also if you play Pokemon, there are tons of Pokestops here. My kid loves it, I love it, my friends love it, and dag nab it, my dogs love it too.
  • It is a very nice park. I love going there for photography. The environment is great. Good park for family and friends to hang out.
  • Great park for activities. Large paved walking path runs around the duck pond. Decent parking. Plenty of shade trees, trash drops and drinking fountains. Very well kept overall. Seems to be fishing available as well.
  • I grew up in this park and have been frequenting it for 52 years. It is a beautiful park with ball fields,an obstical course, swings, a train engine to play on, a huge pond that you can fish in, an arts festival every September, picnic shelters , tennis courts,and a nsture museum next to it.
