There are nice hiking trails and you can enjoy views of the foothills while going on short or long walks.

There is nothing really special about this place. It is a park on a lake and a good place for a picnic and a walk. If you need a quick getaway from the busyness, you can go to this park on the way to somewhere.

If you visit a big park like that, paying a fee to enter you expect that there should be a fountain that works inside or at least a place where you can buy a bottle of water. Unfortunately I had to leave the park early...More
