This park is beautiful for pictures and picnics. The only thing i don't LOVE is that the playground has that ground up tire stuff. It gets the kids' hands so gross and the bathrooms don't have soap. I am glad that there are bathrooms though.

Bring your kids, dogs, family, to enjoy all the playground equipment then tour the veterans memorial. One of the most impressive documentaries of the gains as well of the sacrifices of our veterans. Spend a couple of hours, bring a picnic and enjoy the day....More

Most will visit this as a site for youth soccer, with several well-maintained fields. But it is also a memorial park honoring the vets from all of out (too many) wars.

I have been here a few times and even used the BBQ grills and cooked out there. It is a great family place. I like the fact that the park has a skate board area and a area honoring our veterans.

You can meet friends and make parties there. During the summer you can meet some annoying mosquitos , because it is so hot.

I took my 3 grandchildren ages 2,4, and 7. The tire swing was a big hit for all three. The two different playgrounds for age levels was loved by the youngest. I felt he was safe at all times while playing. This park is very...More

There are no formal parking places for an RV (and no hookups), but i guess you could try to park in their parking lot. I cannot guarantee that the police wouldn't run you off (especially at night, since there was a... More
