It looks very unmaintainable in the last couple years. There is no access to the lake anymore as it use to be, and that is due to the grass and brushes left to grow wild around the lake. Poor maintenance. Terrible.

When I began doing reviews on TripAdvisor I never thought I’d review a landfill. But, here it is — and for good reason. This is an impressive repurposing of a large landfill — converting a trash dump to a very nice community park that offers...More

Good for walking, running, exercising. Not much there except a big hill, which you can climb by stairs. You can run/ walk around the base. Nice small lake view. Good for family with kids. KIDS can either just run around at top of the hill...More

This park features a slightly less than 2 mile trail around the “mountain” and the adjacent lake. It’s a beautiful and easy walk. The trail around the lake includes fitness stations with pictures/directions on how to use the equipment properly. Nothing too invoked but enough...More

We stopped by on our way into the beach, and it was lovely! Great place to picnic, or just run and play!
