    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.

    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.

    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.
