  • We were hired to provide our DJ services in a pavilion to the far East side of the park. It was extremely accommodating. Had the sufficient electricity we needed to connect our equipment, pavilion was nice and clean. No issues at all. The park staff were extremely helpful because it was a long haul from where we park to load/unload. Thank you park staff for keeping such a nice park clean for everyone to use.
  • Such a wonderful place to take the kids, go relax, exercise and much more. There is a small train which parents can take their kids, you can rent 2 or 4 person bicycles and take a ride all around the park, you can go out on the water while renting peddle boats, they have various exercise stations all around the park so while your running you can stop by these stations and get a better workout. Enjoy!
