I enjoyed moments around the lake where I could take photos of birds. Good place for a walk around the lake. I didn't go to other parts of the park in my two visits but I could see it is a place that children and families can easily enjoy.

This place is a gem! Tons to do: mini golf, fishing, walking, jungle gym and more. All free!!! Shaded parking and a quiet environment. There is even a dog park for those pet lovers. Have been here many times and will continue to enjoy it while my kids are young!

Mary Jo Peckham is good for kids of all ages. They have fishing, playgrounds, and a mini golf course. Our kiddos love to spend a nice afternoon there.

Such a lovel6 spot. My husband and I take walks here several times a week. My favorite is the baby ducks waddling all over. It's a great spot for a picnic

Nice, clean and fun for all ages. Great spot to walk around, let the kids enjoy the playground, or even just cast your fishing rod and sit underneath a tree. But beware of there oversized birds. One screamed at me and another pooped on me. Not happy about that.

This park is ideal for younger (9 and under) children. Some of the stuff is a little run-down, like the mini-golf, but overall the park is well-maintained. There is a large pond with a walking trail that goes around it, and two playgrounds. The pond is stocked with rainbow trout, although I've heard mixed reviews on the fishing. It is... More
