This is a nice park, with a concrete hiking trail around the lake. There is a splash pad for kids and fishing available at the lake. There is easy access to the lake for fishing. They have paddle boats and canoes for rent.

Beautiful park. Set up great and planned for the future. We didn't get to do all that was there, but the kids loved the water park and playground area. Hoping to do the swan paddle boats next time!
