This is a huge asset for the city. It’s a great spot for a walk or ride. Wonderful scenery with a few hidden gem trails. Enjoy!!

Surprisingly big with lots to interest the young-birds, park with play apparatus and ducks etc. and older with walks and restaurant. Sometimes special events are held there-concerts , films sponsored walks but it offers a pleasant sojourn any time..
