  • I love our park plenty to do here. Cook out let the kids play in the free splash pad. Bring your boat they have a free boat ramp. They have several covered areas for cooking out. And for those big events. You can rent the big one with bathrooms and all. Come check it out it's for the whole family. And if your in too walking they ha e two concrete paths to walk on to get your exercise in. Plus work out stations along the way. Come out have fun with the family and enjoy the pavilions or rent the big one and have a party.
  • Awesome jogging and walking park. Great view of 2-10 bridge and lake. Good park to read a book. Meditations by Marcus Areilous comes to mind.
  • It's kids friendly and pet friendly. It's on the water. Has a boat ramp, a toddler slide and bigger kid slide. A small ampli theater, a mini boardwalk... Gazebos places to hold events and a summer water side for kids to cool off.
  • The area is kept clean and looking good. Police regularly patrol the area. Some rules are not enforced, such as pet rules.
  • Great place to jog or walk. Plenty of water fountains and places to sit. It does get busy at times. Kayak launch is a plus.
