I go here to enjoy a run, walk, or hike along the many trails. It has a big field for activities, community center, and lake. A good place to spend an afternoon outside :)

I really like this park because it's peaceful, nice walking trails, the lake with benches and because both the Senior Center and the Community Center are located there. They are both great places for the events they sponsor and for meeting venues.

It's a lovely park....never terribly busy...has a great, great sand box, so bring your sand toys! Mostly shade....bathrooms are not too close, so make sure little ones potty trained go potty before coming :)

We’re incredibly lucky to feel like we’ve gone to the mountains yet be minutes away from home. Great little hiking spot. It’s also nice to be able to kayak and go paddle boating. Very inexpensive. Great park!

Beautiful park with lots of trails through the forest and around the lake. It also has a community center and senior center that are both well maintained. The boat house is a great addition where you can rent paddle boats or buy worms for fishing....More

We started the day at the state fair, had a little rest at the hotel, and came here to enjoy a beautiful warm fall afternoon hike before dinner. The trails are terrific - we took several, the rustic one back behind the lake and there...More

Great, well maintained trails. There are 3 different loop trails that meet up at a central spot near the Community Center which is great. All trails are relatively short with the Lake Trail being the longest (2 miles). A great place to take a short...More
