  • It's always quiet around the park. I love to just leave my phone at home and go and reconnect with nature. I love to go and utilize the workout equipment they have. Amazing place and it's cheap to drive in 3 Monday through Friday and 5 on weekends.
  • Great place to go for a walk. Peaceful and has abundant wildlife such geese & birds. Has a lake for fishing, a stream, 2 playgrounds, tennis courts and a good place to go for a run or biking. Lots of covered picnic areas with sinks. Several restrooms in the whole park. Water fountains for people and pets. Entrance fee charged thru main entrance for vehicles, but you can walk in for free and park elsewhere.
  • One of our favorite parks! If it's a holiday, be sure to get there early to secure a picnic table! Covered picnic spots are available for rental. It's perfect for running, too - if you follow the trail it's a 5k run! Lots of beautiful trees, bird watching and a big lake. Dive careful, those geese are in no hurry to cross the road and will not move faster just because you're there ;)
  • Finally stopped to check out this park. It has a nice lake, lots of geese and some large pavilions for special events. It's not worth the $3 parking just to use the playground, but there's more to the park than I had time to discover.
  • My company had a Company Picnic here. There was a lot of open space for sports and activities. Renting out the shelters was a pretty simple process, but the park did not inform us that certain inflatables were not allowed on park premises so we had to make different arrangements. Different OC parks have different rules on what is allowed, so if you are planning an event with the OC parks, make sure you ask that specific park what is allowed and not.
