We brought our 2 grandchildren last Thursday night for the Lighting of the Christmas lights and Santa Claus. They had fireworks, hot chocolate, school choir and cookies. It was very well organized and a lot of fun!!!

Good place to have a picnic lunch but otherwise not worth the trip. Just a simple park with sporting fields.

I took my grandkids to the park so they could play and they loved the play area, the walk around the pond, and most of all the variety of ducks around the pond.

This is a nice spot for a stroll around the lake. It isn't far, but it is fun to see all the ducks and very peaceful.

Nice place to take a walk with the family. Very nice during the day. Night time brings more teenagers hanging out so we prefer to go during the day light hours.

We enjoy visiting this park when we come to Tupelo. The lake, the geese, ducks, and walking trails are awesome.

Unless it has changed since we lived there, you can reserve without a fee but you do need to call Parks and Rec. as soon as possible. Enjoy your time there.
