Bring your kids, dogs, family, to enjoy all the playground equipment then tour the veterans memorial. One of the most impressive documentaries of the gains as well of the sacrifices of our veterans. Spend a couple of hours, bring a picnic and enjoy the day. A wonderful park.

Most will visit this as a site for youth soccer, with several well-maintained fields. But it is also a memorial park honoring the vets from all of out (too many) wars.

I have been here a few times and even used the BBQ grills and cooked out there. It is a great family place. I like the fact that the park has a skate board area and a area honoring our veterans.

You can meet friends and make parties there. During the summer you can meet some annoying mosquitos , because it is so hot.

I took my 3 grandchildren ages 2,4, and 7. The tire swing was a big hit for all three. The two different playgrounds for age levels was loved by the youngest.

My older boys loved this park. They would ask to go to the "war park". They would learn something new about our country's wars every time they went. The playgrounds have different levels of play for differing age groups. Lots of open spaces for family activites and picnics.

We came here for a child's birthday party (definitely a good place to do this), and we ended up having a good time. You can do a lot of walking here, photographing, or whatever your heart desires.
