  • Beautiful park. Very nice lake with benches and picnic tables available. Grilling is allowed. Some beautiful nature animals there including beautiful birds and ducks. The 3 mile walking path is also a biking path and has place for both pedestrians and bikers. This park is definitely relaxing and rejuvenating.
  • Love it, great place to relax our self. Entrance $ 8.00 per car. Picnic area with a beautiful view of the lake, they have table, there some grill available but u can bring ur own grill (no permit needed is free). The swimming pool its awesome a lot of space to stay, they have 2 water slide and a water area for kids (cost 5.00 weekend). They sell food, coffee, ice and more. handicap welcome. Some picnic area its closer to the pool, need to come early. I extremely recommended.
