  • Lovely park. Small, quaint. Thanks to the Marquandt family who donated it. Very thoughtful gift now the public can enjoy this arboretum. Interesting trees from all over the world planted throughout
  • Really fabulous time. It gets a little chilly under the big trees so bring an extra sweater or blanket. Kids will make new friends, get their toes in the sand without having to go to the beach and make memories. It is relaxing for parents to read while kids play. We enjoyed the small walk/ trails as they were perfectly manicured and the trees are all labeled to teach kids.
  • Small play structure, standard swings, but the large sandbox FULL of sand (and other) toys. Plenty of little friends to play with, nice walking trails with plants labeled, and mid-sized parking lot. Port-o-Potty on site.
  • The park is beautiful! My 2 year old LOVES the giant sand pit filled with trucks and toys. It's become our new favorite park.
  • Very good, except traffic problem. Few no turn red are making traffic jam.
