  • Great for a picnic and stroll through the park! They have a carousel and cute train. We enjoyed a picnic lunch and then walked the small park.

  • Searching for parks and found this one. Decided to spend our time before we go to grocery store. Got surprised when visited. Such a awesome place to spend a day. Attractions are Carousel, Kiddie Boat and Train.. Carousel was closed but kiddie boat and train were operative. $1.5 each for both rides which is more that worth for the rides. One can easily spend a whole day here just sitting and looking at the nature. Just loved this park. Strongly recommended.
  • My son absolutely loved this park, from the playground (great for toddlers) to the train ride and everything in between. Concessions were reasonably priced, however we didn't order so i can't speak to the quality of the food. Lots of picnic areas in the grass or under a shelter. Plenty of turtles and fish to see in the water and an overall pleasant appearance of the park. Can't wait to go back when the boats and carousel are open and running.
