  • This place has many ball fields both soccer and baseball and softball. The facilities are nice with restroom facilities. There is a nice small pond to walk around with many ducks and geese that you can see. They have a good sized playground appropriate for all ages of kids. They have a good walking track that goes around most of the park. We go here probably once a month or so when it is nice out.
  • The fishing is good, at least for my son. The lake is beautiful. If you're interested in a walk, jog, or bike ride, the path around the lake is great and scenic. Or you can use the paths around the picnic area behind the lake. There are many things to see and do.
  • The playground is fabulous. It was very muddy on our first trip, but they have since laid new mulch. Great place for a picnic. Lots of paved trails for walking and biking.
  • Beautiful local park! nice lagoon, gazebo, historic buildings, ice cream shop, splash park, baseball diamonds, bike trail, walking trail around lagoon. several kids play areas, pavillion. old church for getting married in. also has special events.
  • Beautiful park with lots of amenities. Bike paths, walking paths and many historical building. There's a small chapel there that people get married in all of the time too. Ducks are everywhere, watch your step.
