  • It was a nice park! Kids loved the huge slides down the side of the hill! One BIG problem..... TICKS!!! Loads of them! There were 10 of us and 2 dogs and we all had multiple ticks! My son had 9, step-son had 2, my 3 girls had 4 each, I had 6, husband had 2 and our friends reported that they had a lot as well! We were picking ticks off our dogs for days! If you go were a TON of spray and check yourself and your pets!
  • Cedar Waxwings enjoying the berries on the trees.
