Great place to take a walk! I love the structures and buildings that were left from the glass factory! The designer did an awesome job capturing the remains. The lake and bridges are pretty awesome too!
This is a beautiful Park! I've lived in the area for 6 years and this was the first day I went. I will definitely go again there's so much to see and do. A big shout-out to Ariel Corporation for funding such a beautiful space!!!
