  • Tenny Park is one of the best parks in this city. It has been around forever and can look very majestic. In the winter you can skate and in the summer you can go fishing. Tenny Park is home to "The most beautiful bridge on earth" Although many people would argue that, it still looks like something you would see in a high end photograph. The only downside to Tenny park is all the algae.
  • We love Tenney, specially for younger children, the play structure is very nice. The beach is lovely, when clean. Very nice place to relax or have a picnic and spend the day.
  • My favorite park in the beautiful city. Beach, bike paths. Most beautiful bridge. Tenney locks. Nice pavilion. Ice skating in the winter. Amazing trees jetting out over the lake.
  • Great lace to fish, swim and play volleyball. You can even get a Birdseye view of boats going thru the Tenney Park Locks, a real treat for out of town guests!
  • Been coming here since I was a kid. Great fishing, kid friendly park, feed the ducks. Beautiful park.
