Out of town and loved his stop to get the kids out and moving! The park was a huge hit and the fountains were a slight regret wit changing entire outfits after, but they had a blast.

My family loves to come here in the summer for free movie in the park nights. My little girl loves playing in the splash pad in summer months and on the playground year round! So much fun and it’s free!

Nice place to relax and let the kids play. The playground is pretty new and very accessible. The fountain is also a kid favorite especially in hot weather. Some larger spaces to throw a frisbee around and have a picnic.

Fun for children with water play and the best playground around! Check the calendar for great music, movies in the park and other fun activities.

The park is not that large, but for a city park, it is nice. Keep an eye on the events that occur. There are bands and events at the amphitheater. Christmas is great with decorations and the kickoff event for the tree is magnificent.

Play in the fountain during the sping, summer and fall. See all the lights in the part for the winter and the dancing lights of the tree. A fun place for people of all ages.
