  • This was a bustling yet beautiful location for my friend's simple wedding. Parking for our section was very limited but it was easy enough to find a space in the neighborhood. We are from out of town and had heard mixed opinions so I was happy to see that it was a popular and well kept park. Seems very family friendly as well.
  • We hit up the public pool. It was nice. Not crowded and the staff was helpful. The park itself seemed great. There were activities going on everywhere.
  • I love this park so much. The path is perfect for bike riding or an evening walk. It makes me happy seeing all the people playing volleyball.
  • I love wash park! It is great for any type of exercise or just hanging out. They have great, well marked bike paths and walking paths for everyone. They have two nice ponds to hang out by as well and always a fun crowd on warm days.
  • Nice big park. Lots of room. There was some sort of volleyball tournament or something, lots of people, but the place is so big my fiance and I still had very nice walks around the ponds and saw lots of birds.
