  • This is a great place to take a walk. The Atmosphere is great and the sites help calm a busy day. You can come and eat or shop at the local shops, Sit and look at the lake, walk around and catch loads of Pokémon, Lay out and get some sun. Thursday nights is also food truck night. I would give the place 5 stars but I have not seen any new things added to the park in awhile. Otherwise its a great place to visit. A kids play ground would make this place great. I think it doesn't have one to give a more adult/college student feel.
  • Peaceful and enjoyable little park with local "wild life" like ducks, geese, turtles and others. Family friendly, date friendly.
  • Nice place to walk bring your dog good exercise for all, a lot of shade trees and park benches. The Black Dog is a nice place to sit and talk with friends. Food Truck Thursday offers a variety of foods and a different band plays every week.
  • Nice park to sit and relax, have lunch or take a wall/run. Lots of geese though.
  • Love to walk around this park after lunch or dinner with my kids. Wish pet owners were conscientious and pick up their pet's waste.
