One of our favorite things to see, kids ran around and got rid of energy and the site is so beautiful and quiet that it was more like paradise than a park.. But lots of play equipment too!

From the parking lot to the spring it’s 400 yards approximately on a concrete sidewalk. There’s a nice ramp intended for handicap accessible access. I think you should have an enjoyable experience.

You can drive down to and around the general area. To actually see the spring and the beautiful park area you need to walk the developed paths.
