  • Walk your way around the loop. Enjoy Pokestops, Friendly smiles and dogs to pet along the way! walk across the 2!! bridges. One to enjoy the view and family park on the other side. The other a lower bridge (new) to enjoy the dog park and many miles of trails for the joggers, dog runners or bikers :)
  • Sadly many people do smoke here especially during events. It is so common I removed a star from this park. It is fun and full of space. They finished the base of their new bridge so pedestrians and bicyclists can now cross it. There's a beautiful carousel there. Also a playground one for little kids and a separate one for big kids.
  • This park has greatly improved from when I was a kid. They have recently added two new pedestrian bridges, which connect the marshes and wildlife areas with the park. The area is under active expansion and is a great place to bring families, bike, and walk around. It is also conveniently close to downtown for stores and restaurants.
  • It's nice for a walk in the park with ur dog and or partner. They have the carousel not just for little kids but big kids too. And if u want to walk across the bridge they just put in u can do tht too. It's just a big beautiful playground for all ages
  • I like the open place kids can play and cool off and fishing and water fun and Indoor carousel and snacks. Play area and can walk the trails. Could use more events and things to do .
