Love the rainbow fountains when they're running. Overall a great place to walk, swing or relax. Parking can be difficult, but there are lots of good things about the park to make up for it.

Great place to visit whether summer or winter. Lots of space to run and play. Slides, climbing walls and other equipment provide varied types of activity. You might make a plan for parking before visiting.
