  • A nice park with plenty of shade through walking areas. There are quick paths, bike paths, and even forest paths. The park is constantly improving. Ex. Now they have a bike station where you can wash and fix your bike. There's also a new walk/bike path that has exercise equipment all along it.
  • This is a great park so so many things to do. There are several play areas for the kids with a variety of playground equipment. There are nice jogging trails all around, with miscellaneous workout equipment along the paths. There are ball fields, tennis courts and so much more. The lake is nice sized and beautiful to sit next to while having a picnic. My favorite part though is the ATV area where you can bring your 4-wheelers or motorcycles and have a great days exploring all the trails.
  • The park is well kept. There are multiple pavilions scattered across the perimeter of the lake for outdoor cooking and events. Each pavilion has its own unique park, and the view of the lake is gorgeous. Combined with the plentiful shade, trails, and sports fields, the park allows you to do almost everything outdoor-wise.
  • I must say we were absolutely shocked! This is probably the best park we have been to in our 4 years of RVing . This park has it all ! All activities for families and groups. A dog park with swimming area and a dog ramp jump. A walking bridge over the lake and even a Kona Ice truck that drives through .( that was great and refreshing). And the park host was the best ! So very friendly. Loved it ! We will be back .
  • Great walking,biking, running trails. Nice lake,great camping,water park and splash pad, lots of fun for all.
