Always enjoy visiting this park. Still remember when it had a public swimming pool. There are lots of areas for hiking, volleyball and picnics. The BBQ set up is very convenient. Lots of parking. Wish the county would renovate the baseball field.

We attended my husband's high school reunion in Flood Park. It was a hot day but there were some shade trees which were very welcome. It was a picnic and everyone brought their own food.
