  • Really nice park with tons of beautiful scenic views. You will certainly see some pretty sunsets from up there. The pool would be the major draw I would think but they have added a huge playground full of tires. Also a good chance of seeing some wildlife strolling through. There are two big pavilions up near the pool for rent and two others on the road leading in. Might as well stop by and pack a lunch and bring a book.
  • Great prices, Swimming, Hiking, I believe camping?, Recycled Tire Playground, etc. A much liked place for local residents to go for fun in the summer.
