  • For a stroll through a city park, this has a beautiful trail with a nice canopy of Oak trees around a small lake with ducks & geese. A social walk with people watching activity. #7 of 10 favorite...

  • The playground equipment in the main playground is very impressive. There is a much smaller playground but that consists mainly of swings and a rock wall for much older kids. The main playground...

  • Great family park featuring tons of amenities for all ages and interests. A small stocked pond with boat rentals is great for a relaxing day on the water, though there is no shade so be sure to sun block! Can be kinda grimy near boat launch but better on the far side opposite the dam. The rest of this large park is great for kids with the snack bar, huge play area and an awesome mini train tour makes for an unforgettable day at the park.
  • Howarth Park is a child's paradise. Our grandson had his 3rd Birthday party there and there was so much for the kids to do. Petting Zoo, Pony Rides, Train Rides and more. The grounds are well kept and thr restrooms are clean. They also have lovely trails for hiking/walking.
