Have visited a few times, and park is always well maintained, with no liter and allot of nice families enjoying the park. There is always plenty of parking, and free during the week!

Quiet retreat. Walked about the well manicured lawns and used the track around the lake. Can do literally anything out there from catching up on reading, just watching the world go about, or even work out.
