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!
