  • Grew up 2 blocks from this park n done all of the things u do at a park. Played football ' Hockey on the pond in the winter when it froze played softball ' played fuzzball n even played in the trees there. WHAT u never played in trees when u where a kid give me a break lol..😂😁 and even attended a wedding there which was my niece. So very pleasant place to go to. There's all kinds of stuff u can do here. Nice plus pretty park. They have a walk paths n have 4 different places u can enter n exit from so easy access here.
  • One of the largest and most beautiful parks in the city. Very well maintained and beautifully landscaped. Huge variety of offerings: trails for running/walking, pavilions for parties and grilling, multiple sports fields, playgrounds, water fountains, and more. The park often hosts special events and farmers markets as well.
  • A beautiful park it's very clean and well kept. The pavilions are always lovely. Highly recommend for a stroll, party, dog walk, or just a lazy day in the shade of one of the many mature trees on site.
  • Each Saturday's till about 12:30 pm, Farmers Market. Dogs welcomed. Mondays offer music at the band stand. Like if this was useful.
  • One of the most beautiful parks in the city! Great place to spend an afternoon with the kids. They even have a huge fountain they fill up and let kids play in it during summer. They also have the Farmers Market here during spring, summer and part of fall.
