Used to be a place to go birding; you would get to see herons and shore birds. Water flow has been a problem, but I think City was working on fix. I loved this park; many families have picnics on Sundays especially.

This is charming park, with lots of water to view and watch the ducks and turtles and other creatures. Also, there are good picnic tables scattered throughout. The paths are paved and easily negotiable. There is ample parking. It is indeed an oasis!
