Made a last minute decision to go to Tampa for Thanksgiving in November 2017. Well worth it. Enjoyed time with family and this park is beautiful. It has everything. Trails, basketball and tennis courts, picnic area, lakes and wildlife. Can't wait to go back.

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.
