There was adequate parking midday. We paid the all day fee (10 hour max) with a credit card at the kiosk in the parking lot. There was a beverage stand next to the parking lot. Our family of 5 took the seaplane tour for $280....More

Very well laid out and developed park along shore of lake. Includes museums, basketball courts, child play equipment, historical ball field and soooo many large beautiful trees. Stringent rules about no dogs on grass. Also has beach front access on sandy beaches.

The park is in the downtown area, with a large parking lot. There is a small beach on the lake, and a lot of benches to relax on.

This is the main hang! Everybody knows about independence point. It is a decent beach, plenty of parking (not free), good sand, swimming zone, board/kayak/paddleboat rentals, and treats all available here.
