Four times around the park is one mile. The playground is nice for all ages and if you bring bread for the ducks you'll be there friend. The park has a number of community wide events including but not limited to cops and cones, movies in the park, and yoga. A nice place for family pictures or ultimate Frisbee.
So pretty! Bigger than I thought it was. I love the parkopoly they have going on this summer. The fountains are beautiful. Great place to walk around and enjoy the outdoors. May bring a book and read next time!
