Great facilities all in one place, needs play equipment for bigger kids who like to play! Love you can park in one place and access all facilities.

We have been to this park several times to take the kids to the playgrounds. Playgrounds are really nice. Kids loved it here. My main complaint about the kids playground area is that the 2 parking lots next to the playgrounds are TOO SMALL. I actually took the kids here this summer once and had to leave since there was...

This park is beautiful. You can take your kids to the playgrounds that are there. There are basketball courts, tennis, skate park and many other activities to do at this park. The new playground is great! I took my daughter there the other day and we must have been there for 2 hours. We also went walking on the trail... More

Our grandkids love it here. There are so many things to climb on. they added a new section over the summer that is really unusual and fun. Needs more trees though for shade.

The equipment for kids to climb, slide and play on is sturdy and looks like fun. However, we visited the day after a decent rain and found a good deal of bare ground that had become mud. In addition, there were spots where the water--and mud--had flowed over the concrete walkways. There is very little shade around the kiddie play... More

Nice park for bike ride. 2.5 miles, flat. Huge playground for kids. Great hill for sledding. Not a good park for dogs. No shade or water.

This park is in great need of regular maintenance. The walking trail is constantly littered with dog doo so it's like walking a booby trap trail. You can't even enjoy walking along and looking at the scenery because you are constantly dodging the piles on the trail. And that is not the only regular maintenance issue that needs attention. I...

This park is pretty flat, but has a good mix of paved and off road trails through the woods. A nice place to exercise on a nice day...

This park has a lot to offer. Great for kids of all ages. Has separate play areas designed for different ages. Also a skateboard area. Nice paved walking trail. There are also tables and places to sit and eat. Dog park too.
