I've visited when roses were in bloom and enjoyed it greatly. Last visit was a bit "off season" and less interesting. Park has many other amenities and great local resource.

Well kept and pleasant. Parking can be challenging if you arrive when swimming and tennis classes are going on. Park could use more shaded seating areas for parents. Overall a great park and location.

Nice suburban park, the big feature is the huge swimming pool, which is very popular. Gardens are pleasant.

Just love to walk around this park. Lots of nature things to look at. The turtles in the lake are fun to watch. Lots of paved walkways to help you explore. Don't pass it up
