I love to go on walks and this is the perfect place to do that. Its like a very small Central Park. The landscape is pretty and they keep it very clean. It also has a place for kids which is nice.

This is a nice big park that caters to most outdoor folks. There is a place for toddlers and preschoolers to play as well as climbing jungle gym for older kids. Have taken grandchildren there for many years.

Its big, and its flat, which makes it good for jogging! They sometimes have a stage set up, and a variety of activities on the weekends, like 5Ks

This is my family's favorite park,it has a huge dog park and multiple playgrounds. DO NOT let your dogs or kids play near the water we have seen multiple alligators and they swim right up to us!
