  • This local park has something for everyone. Personally, I enjoy kayaking on the lake watching the Canadian geese and fisherman, etc. The park has a skateboard ramp area, biking, soccer, and lots more. 
  • We dropped by to give our respects to the professional Firefighters that have lost their lives. It is a beautiful memorial. 
  • A big lake about a mile around with a nearby sidewalk circling it. Many people fish or water ski there. Park is also a haven for drug dealers, pit bulls, and the homeless. Bad area/neighborhood, impov...  more »

  • Great place during the day. Not so much at night. The city takes great care of this park and memorials. Fishing is fun for the family and is frequently stocked with many species. Great for walks or runs around the lake as well. Best to be there during the day. Evenings and nights are scary due to gang activity and drug use.
  • This place is a nice place surrounding a lake with picnic tables, a walking trail, kayaking or canoeing permitted. No swimming. Fishing permitted. There are memorial statues for our military. There is a playground for children. Grassy areas for picnicking and sandy areas near the lake. Family oriented!!
  • Fun people watching at the tranquil lake. My daughter likes that it's not near as crowded or busy compared to local pools, music is better, less expensive, beautiful church bells play regularly, minnows?? in the water, and she can play in the sand.
  • We saw the Labor Day weekend balloon launch here and it was so fun! A couple balloons were able to touch down in the water before gliding off high into the sky. I can't say much for the day to day park goings-on, but will update this if I get more experience here.
  • Enjoyable place. Took some friends to pick up garage and the atmosphere was nice. Pick up your trash people! It's everyone's responsibility. :)
