  • enjoyed the bike trails, espeially the shady tropical jungle feel of the trail to the left, fun water/splash zone for kiddos to cool off, Community Garden is a beautiful walk.

  • I love the variety of things this park offers. It has a small train museum with gift shop, a mile long mini train ride, walking with mother nature (and a bike trail I still have yet to walk), 2 small water parks/play area (1 currently under construction), 2 playgrounds (1 under construction), wide open spaces (for sports, parties, or whatever you can imagine), small lake for fishing or paddle board or those boats you pedal (self propelled), AND a Children's Garden with a Community Growing Garden. It's a $5 parking fee for all day, which helps develop and maintain the park but it is worth it. Train rides are $5/person, children under 3 are free, or buy a pass like me for $45 for 13 rides. It's a beautiful place for kids and adults. You can rent the boats and family bikes. I believe prices are reasonable starting at single riders (2 people) for $20, I saw the sign didn't really rent one yet. And during the holidays there's events with multitudes of other things to do. We can definitely spend all day there and never be bored.
  • This park is AMAZING! It literally has everything for everyone and is HUGE! Great for nature walks on the trails around the entire park. Playgrounds are super nice and don’t forget to take your little one for a ride on the small train. We had a great time and couldn’t possibly get to it all so we’re planning on going back soon!
