We stopped here for approx. 1 hour. The park seems very big with lots of different paths and trails. There is also some nice water areas and nice buildings. This would be a great place for a picnic or bbq in good weather

Slater park used to be a small zoo but due to budget problems it was closed and runs now as a regular scenic park. Great place to play ball or just have a family picnic.
