A total rip off! $10 to park....no big deal, kinda expected that. Super crowed (can't see why). Entry into the faire near $30 each and aside from a few child type backyard games, everything costs additional money. Basically you pay to walk around in the...More

Nice local wide life. Good tree selection for shade or photos. Fun place for a BBQ. I would recommend bringing bread to feed the ducks, or a kite toys to keep busy with. Swimming is always an option.

So much to do!, Great for picnics, then the bike trails, fishing and even hiking areas. There is a small water park type area for the kids too!

This park is a jewel in the city! It is hidden behind a dam, tucked away from busy city scene. If you are not looking for it, you wouldn't know it is here. Once you turn in, the area opens up and the lake, the...More

It's been over 7 years since I attended a Faire at this location. I recall the first year it moved from Devore. It was small and not what I and many other Faire goers were used too. They have done a fine job of expanding...More

I am sorry but I don't know about the swimming facilities. You may want to ask Sta. Fe Dam Recreation staff directly. Thank you.
