I have visited this park many times. A great playground for the kids. I like to walk beside the lakes. It is nature at its best. The nature center is also very interesting. Well worth visiting.

I went here with my wife and kids. The trails are nice along the lakes and easy to walk with little kids. The nature center is a worth a stop if it is open. The playground has some nice equipment for kids of all ages.

Free entertainment for a variety of interests and age levels. Have been with small children and high school aged kids. Can fish with license but need to bring your own equipment. Nature Center is air-conditioned and wild life is well described. Handicap accessible.

Just recently found the center - it was great! Inside there are exhibits to walk around and see. Outside there is a little lake to walk around and a playground area that's fairly extensive! Love that it's free!!
