The Mercer County Park is a beautiful, serene oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of everyday living. This particular night we were at the Boathouse on the Marina for an outside festive happy hour with food, drink and a wonderful band, Kindred Spirit. Lots of fun, good conversation (the band was excellent and kept it lively but at a nice sound level). The lake and surrounding area us just beautiful and hard to believe homes, businesses and Mercer college are all nearby. Just the thing for a quick getaway. Highly recommended!
Large park with no shortage of areas for activities. More ports potties and trash cans would be ideal, but I understand how infrastructure works unfortunately, it’s already such a large area it would most likely take even more for those suggestions to be maintain. At any rate still a great park to bring the kids or for a solo jog. Had an opportunity to volunteer at a Triathlon held her as well and the park officials were phenomenal in supporting such a great event!
