  • This park is so beautiful! My husband and I enjoy walking and hiking the trails. They have paved walkways and outdoor gym equipment/therapy. Our daughter loves seeing the ducks and geese!!
  • This is a very nice park. A list of some of what it offers; a walking/bike trail that is well maintained, a play area for small children, a dog beach/dock, primitive and RV camping, a nature center, disc golf course, pump track, baseball diamond, ATV tracks, shelters for cook outs/parties, bathroom facilities, ummmm, I'm sure I'm missing something but you get the point. Def go add your name to the log and see the live animals in the nature center!
