  • I went for the 4th of July fireworks. They were well organized. I'm very impressed. Parking, getting in and getting out was painless for having so many people leaving at he same time.the park was clean and spacious. Love the crafts they had for the kids and the bounce houses they loved it. I will have to come back on a day there isn't an event and update.
  • Great place to run, play, and boat. Big open fields allow space for soccer, drone flying, and events. The Veterans Memorial showcases bricks for names of veterans, and the park has many trails! Worth a visit!
  • Great place for almost any activity. It has water, trees, plains and recreational areas. Regular grounds keeping is nice but I question the quality of the work sometimes, there have been lots of sand spurs through the grassy areas and they just mulched the entire dog park - not sure what the though process is there.
  • 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 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
