  • Gorgeous spot! Needed a nice place to sit for a video meeting and was extremely happy to stumble upon this lovely park. Seems a popular spot to stop in your vehicle, take a walk, or play. There are a lot of recreational courts for games like tennis, a playground, a sandy beach, and a walking path.
  • Enjoy coming here with my wife and kids. It's very relaxing and educational (I'm constantly reminding them of this historic places in the area). It's also well maintained and is a great spot for pictures.
