Ihave lived near here for the past 5 years and first time here back in April. Took my grandkids such a cool place. We will definitely be back. I am trying to go back just for my walks. Nice place for picnics or birthday parties

This is the best park to go to on the weekend. I walk this lake 3 to 4 times a week and never get enough if the peace and tranquility you get while you are there. The people are friendly and the nature is amazing.
