The park is a good size, has a playground for smaller kids, a few shelters for parties and reunions. The best part is the large dog park. Large and small breeds are mixed, you have to bring your own water and bowl. And if or...More

This place has been in the papers over the years for violent crimes. I won't ride my bike along Chester Creek which passes through here due to the interesting population in the woods near this park. Before going here, do your research. Kate M, you...More

Just off of downtown, this is a really nice little park in the woods. There's a salmon stream running through it and a good playground and a couple good open areas.
