This is a clean park closed during night time hours, park rangers and workers here all the time, good place to take your dog. They have a great little museum, nice running trails in back under Mccaren Blvd.

Visited this beautiful park for the Balloon Races. What a great place! Tucked amid neighborhoods and near the University, it was great for the event. I am sure it is also a great place for the whole community.
