Even though the park is on a busy street it is fairly quiet near the back of the park. Saw hawks and other birds. Picnic area and playground for kids.

We drove an hour to see this ". Nature Preserve". It turned out to be a glorified playground with a deck that overlooked the wetlands. The wetlands had all kinds of trash. Nice playground equipment though.

For toddlers this is a great meeting place. This is also a great Birthday Party Park easy to book and you get the whole place to yourself. A 7-11 Slurpee is just steps away. A plus park.
