  • The dog park field can get a little rough when they are irrigating and reseeding, but it's the biggest and best dog park in town. Lots of room to run around and plenty of friendly pooches to keep your canine companions entertained. The kids love the playground area, too. If you are a photo junkie, there are plenty of picturesque areas where you can take photos of all types: think wedding photos, senior portraits, mommy and me, family gatherings and (my wife's favorite) Instagram backdrops for her fashion blog. Lots of interesting buildings and foliage to create the perfect scenery.
  • Fun park to just walk around and enjoy nature. Feels secluded with how the park is set up and almost every event they do is awesome. Walking around you can take in the trees and flowers but will also see a wide variety of birds and lizards. Great place to just hang out.
