Dropped by again with 4 grandchildren and as usual had a great time. Everyone loves the ducks/geese at the pond and the play area is very nice and well kept.

A beautiful park for a leisurely stroll, or a longer and more strenuous walk on the breathtaking South Brook Trail. The City is pretty diligent is keeping garbage under control. The big negative the the amount of doggie doo left everywhere, in spite of signage...More
