  • I think Big Spring Park is definitely one of my favorite places to visit on a nice sunny day. You can grab a coffee at a nearby coffee shop and walk around the park or sit and enjoy the nice views. Lots of people run or bike around the park too. Don't forget to bring quarters to feed the fish! Pretty, safe to visit. Walk, eat and feed the ducks. Any time of day or night. Also, great place for kids to hide and hunt painted rocks.
  • This park is beautiful. It's very serene with lots of benches whether for resting or eating lunch. There's a great place to eat called Keegan's Pub connected to the park at the northern side. Especially pretty during Christmas with the many decorations and trees!!
