This park has a little something for everyone. Playground for the kids, bike and walking paths and a beautiful dam and water fall.

Nice path for strolling, bike riding or walking the dog by the river. I usually like to walk the 3 miles circle around the park. In the summer time, on Sunday afternoons they have live music and concerts

Nice park. Great for waterfowl in the winter. Good picnic areas. Also go to the main Dukes estate. Great birding especially in migration. Gardens.

I love that there's a river next to it so we can walk the path and listen to the water. My baby also loves the small playground. In the summer, there's free movie night or concerts, a must see.

Absolutely! My wife runs through the park. It's a great run and an easy circle to run with no hills. I would recommend it with no worries since the park rangers are always out....plus everyone else.
