I travel with my dog and this is a great place for us to run. Dogs allowed, beautiful marshes and greenery, birds, and mostly level terrain. You have to pay for a day pass to park, and parking in the neighborhood outside the park is...More

I went here with my sister and our teenage kids. The lake is more of a pond/ large puddle. The water is dirty and the beach is more dirt then sand. And there are Canadian geese everywhere. The geese poop is all over the grass,...More

Beautiful open spaces with lake, golden hills, oak trees, trails and many picnic tables. Driving across the park must've taken almost ten minutes. It's huge!

Great walking trails around a serene lake. Great for birdwatchers. Sometimes crowded on the weekend, but hey, isn't it great that we're all out walking? Or fishing. Or bike riding. Lovely spot.

There's a great 2.3 mile walk around the lake, some right at the lake's edge and some in the woods and some on a hill - all enjoyable.

This is a wonderful park, from the sweet playground for young children to the climbing walls for slightly older ones, cross country tracks and accessible walking trails. The lake is pretty at all times of the year and offers great birding. Parking can fill up...More

This would not be the place to for seeing blooming trees. I'm embarrassed to admit, living here my entire life, that I can't think of a place here where you can experience that. Sorry. Hope this makes it to you.
