Centrally located in Sylva with plenty of parking this is a family favorite for play and picnic time. During the summer you can combine your visit with music in the park on Friday nights!

Mostly garbage pail teens, man-children, bums, loose women and other questionable types hang out here. I don't enjoy having my young children around cursing, drinking, smoking, making out, used condoms and other assorted unmentionables that children can pick up. We stay away from that place...More
