Lovely view of the lake, scenic trails are well kept. Good dog-friendly place, jogger-stroller friendly. A few good playgrounds. Wish there were a few more bathrooms scattered about. Beautiful place for a picnic or playing in the creek.

Went there to fish with a friend and was not impressed by the water quality. It was very dirty and skanky. It did appear to be a nice walking park though.

So much to do for all ages. Only need a few dollars for parking & if you want to ride the kid train. Great place for reunions or family picnics. Playgrounds and a splashpad - lots of walking trails. Enjoy!
