  • A wonderful park with outdoor attractions for the whole family. There's a pond with picnic areas on the lower level of the park, and a playground and nature education station on the top level. There are porta potties and a water fountain. The hike along the ridge is beautiful. If you make it to the rear of the mountain, there's an abandoned water park and a quarry that can be fun to explore.
  • The hikes are great. The park ranger situation there can use some improvement. Not very present/interested in actively making it a memorable experience for new comers.
