  • Quaint little local park. There's a trail that connects Lake Benson park with the adjacent park across the road. In total the trails have at least 1.2 miles worth of walking distance. The trails also connect to a Greenway in the adjacent Park. There are good lake views as the trail goes along side the lake. There are plenty of picnic tables that can be reserved. There's a public restroom. There is a playground and dog park. There is abundant space on the inside of the trail that can be used for recreational activities. The grass is frequently mowed. The majority of the trails are paved, but there is a portion that is unpaved. There are several dog waste stations in place that have plastic bags available. There's also a Veterans Memorial at the front of the park.
  • I've been going to this park for years but moved and haven't gone in many months. I decided to go today with my puppy and was pleasantly surprised that they had a dog park now! Our puppy is really shy, had never been to a dog park, and needs socialization. The people we met were really sweet to her. Since our puppy is close to the cut off in size, we took her through the larger dog park area. That was a mistake. The dogs were super friendly in a way that our puppy found terrifying. I was very grateful that one owner saw what was going on and came to help distract their dog as we left. I had to carry our girl out but we brought her back into the smaller dog area and she met a few more nice people and dogs. She didn't want to socialize anymore but at least we left on a positive note. Since I hear a lot about owners just looking on while their dog misbehaves, I wanted to point out the family that did the right thing. Overall a good experience and we'll be back.
  • I Love Coming Her, I Find It Is A Huge Park For Running Lots Of paved path really narrow but we'll paved path for walking. it Was My Son's Birthday and I Bought Him Spiderman Bike We Went Around the Entire park which was a lot of fun. A lake side, 2 small playground areas. It's not the place for trail biking oh a dog par km as well if u have pets
  • Great playground, just wish there would be better trail to the lake. It is almost impossible to go with stroller
  • Super organized family events. Clean and you actually feel safe walking their trails
