Not sure why this popular park has a bad road. Can't ride a bike all the way around without worrying about hitting a pothole in one section. Walkway by water has places that are newer and some that are falling apart. There's a building they...More

Perfect place to walk, rollerblade, picnic or sit by the water. Beautiful bridge for pictures, and a lovely banquet hall.

View of the water. Lots of people fishing. Landscaping not well kept. Playground and picnic tables. A paved walkway next to the water but it was lined with people fishing so you may get hooked. That’s about it.

Great for walking. Outstanding backgrounds for taking prom, homecoming and unique pictures. Great area to fish. Very very clean. Perfect areas for family picnics or bbqs. Wonderful wildlife. Great landscape swings, and much more for children and pets.

No reservations. Just ride when ponies are open for business. Weight restrictions I think not age.
