  • What an amazing, fun park! This was my first time there I brought my nanny charge to splash around at the splash pad, the playground was also very nice, I believe it's been recently renovated. There are walking paths and picnic areas as well. Everything looked clean and taken care of.
  • Parks got it all in a fairly small footprint. Nice concrete pathways, tennis and volleyball courts, large covered pavilion area, public bathroom, and plenty of open grass space. Kids have a splash pad play area and decent play structure. We particularly like the joint parent and tot swings, it's very cool to be able to swing with your kid instead of pushing them.
