This is a beautiful park with several shelters that can be rented. We had a family gathering here and couldn't have been happier. Kids will love feeding the fish and if you're looking for a place for family photos it's great for that too.

This place has such a relaxed feeling to it that you forget outer world and just embrace the beauty of nature. They also have a museum showing how life was during the 1800s in the area.

We visited today, 6/19/17, and the park was not crowded. It was very peaceful watching the fish and walking to the spring. Enjoyed watching the fishermen and the sparkling water.
