I could never recommend this place to anyone. If it is broad daylight your odds of something bad happening go down slightly. That is about as good as I can say about Elm Park. Run!

It is a mile around the park - good mid-day walk or a place for kids to have fun. Can be crazy busy during events but that is the fun!

Elm Park is a small but beautiful park with benches and shady trees, a meandering pond with walking path, and picturesque footbridges. Great spot to relax for a break. Nice for ice skating in the winter.

Great place to take the younger gradkids to the playground. Plenty of space and shade for the adults supervising. The park has room for the kids to stretch their legs.
