Situated in an Oxbow of a former river, this place offers a few hikes and a bit of elevation gain. There is also a small museum on the property as well as a playground and washrooms.

Attended the Walk Out of Darkness event. The park is very well cared for. Bathrooms are clean. Very large play structure available for children. Nice walking paths with other activities available. This would be a great spot for a break to a busy day.

The ball park is historical. You can take in a baseball game in a quaint stadium or a football game with great seating. If you like local history, Paul Bunyon Park is excellent.

The playground equipment was recently replaced and they turned it into a really incredible park. There are play pieces for all ages and even some that are handicap accessible.
