  • We come here for the dog parks. There is a separate enclosure for small dogs and bigger dogs. We've made many fur parent friends here. The parks get muddy with slight rain or snow. I suggest adding more pebbles. Also they always run out of poop bags so parents aren't able to always pick up after their pets. They turn off the water fountains for way too long. It's spring and they're still off. Parents typically bring a gallon or two of water each. Definitely some improvements that are simple to resolve. Having lights on will also be nice because in the winter, its dark by the time parents are able to come after work. The sports fields and ice skating rinks have lights and they are mostly empty, what's a couple more for the pups? The dog park is never empty, please rethink resource allocation.
  • This is a nice park! I enjoy going in warmer weather and walking along the lake. It's a popular place for cookouts because there are several pavilions/picnic areas. On this most recent trip, my husband and I went to the indoor/outdoor skating center on a Saturday afternoon. There are lots of families at this time, but there are adult-only/later public skate times if you don't want to skate with kids. They offer rentals and skate sharpening, and the atmosphere is sort of like a ski lodge. We really enjoyed it!
  • Beautiful large park, outdoor summer concerts which r the bomb! Cookout grills, basketball courts, golfing, boat canoe rdying, bike trails! I mean its marvelous! Family outing 4 baseball! Its a gorgeous family park clean and beautiful
  • The boat house now has small snacks and drinks. You can rent plastic kayaks or foot pedal paddle boats. Sometimes, the Princeton rowing team is practicing on the lake. They're based across the lake. Plenty of decent picnic areas, pavilions that can be rented and many a free concert in the evenings.
  • A large park with a variety of activities available. The restroom was clean. I mainly look for wildlife, but others were biking and walking. There is a marina on the lake, tennis courts, paths and parking. A number of festivals and events are held each year.
