  • Brought in sandwitches. Family ate streamside! Just an absolutely lovely experience. Would highly recommend a visit.
  • Fun little park with lots of different things to do and wonderful scenery. The bamboo forest at the end is really quite special!
  • LOVE this place CAN SOMEONE get me the exact coordinates (latitude/longitude) of the bamboo forest at the end?
  • I wish I had taken pics! Coming from a very outdoorsy family that travels, this is by far the most beautiful public park we've ever seen. There is plenty of green space to play on, as well as a wide, shallow, and clear river THAT YOU CAN SWIM AND TUBE IN FOR FREE (as long as you bring your own, if not you can rent them near by.) The current is strong enough to float in tubes, but gentle enough for my small children. There are also tables/pavilions with grills, making it perfect for parties or just a day on the river.
  • We always enjoy visiting and searching for rocks. Love playing in the river.
