Not a particularly well-kept park, but it offers a place for a picnic and maybe some wade fishing. Lock your car doors, as there is no security available.

The stroll here is really nice and not very challenging. The hills are not that steep and perfect for a walk

Great park area for walking/hiking as long as you are careful of the tree roots along the river. Not much wildlife the morning we went but nevertheless, enjoyable. Pit toilets only in the area we parked.

No pool, but in the summer, you’ll find people playing in the river in the shallow ford areas.
