This is a great place for a short walk (on a flat surface, for those with walking difficulties) or a bike ride. It also has a small artificial lake and a frisbee golf area.

I was told that there's an actual solar system exhibit outside that's throughout the park? Is this still existing?

Do you pay to get in the park and for parking? If so can you please tell me how much? Is there Barbeque Pits onsite and picnic tables close o the pits? I looked at the pictures of the park so is all that within the park area?
