The name Yoctangee is a Native American word for "paint", a reference to the skin and clothing pigments of the culture native to the area.

  • We love this park, always have but one of the things we loved the most has been removed, which is a bummer. But the ice cream man comes there! And they have a wide range of new and old equipment for families to play on, a skate park, and the water is beautiful especially when u get to see & feed all the ducks. There's ball fields, a basketball court and the pool is also there! It's a pretty great park all in all.
  • The park makes us feel so humbled and grateful for it being there. We just love spending time with the swans, geese, ducks and squirrels. The park has alot of things for kids to play on and adding more for adults too. My mother is 80 yrs old and going there makes her day.
