  • Great place for parties, picnics or family gathering. Very spacious and well maintained. Grills, tables, restrooms available. Reservations need to be made if you want to secure an area but after 10 am, it's on a first come basis. There are restrictions however, such as, no generators, no speakers/music etc.
  • This is a great place to bring young children. The goat petting area was a real hit as were the rides. One nice feature of the park is that there are numerous shade trees that protect you even in the case of strong sunshine.
