  • Great dog park. Large gray area. Play ground okay. Special events are fantastic. Balloon races are a must for locals.
  • Love coming here. A great family park. Clean and great for walking. The only downside is bathrooms are not very accessible often locked.
  • Love this park, so much to do, from the dog park, to the play ground, and can't forget the museum... I really enjoyed an exhibition there called toytopia.
  • Great park with a huge open dog park. Plenty of amenities such as bathrooms and jungle gyms. Our dog loves it! Just be careful when it's raining, it gets quite muddy.
  • Great park. Great scenery. However park is full of duck and geese feces. Parking is also adequate but parking located closest to the entrance is full of due to nearby university.
