  • This is alongside the Memorial Park so they kind of overlap. This section of the broader park is excellent and ensure you allot time to go see the cistern.  more »
  • This park is awesome. Very spacious very relaxing. I came here as a tourist to take some pictures of the skyline, but I saw other people who brought their doggies and another couple having a nice little picnic. If enjoying the skyline view, having a picnic and bringing your fur babies is in your plans then this is the spot for you.
  • Beautiful park! Wear comfy clothes! Large enough to explore on bike or walk the trail. Has basketball, volleyball, trails. I love coming here to hangout or ride bikes! Great place for pics too. Multiple places to park in as well.
