One of the best parks around and worth the hour drive to go there. We had 6,9,14 and 17 year old with us and they all found something to do. There are clean bathrooms, water fountains aims, shade, and eating area. Great place for families!

The blooming petunias, Impatients, and other flowering plants, rows of lovely vegetables, boxwood hedges, and the perfectly manicured lawns are such a wonderful place for a romantic stroll.

This is a great park. It is large, with activity levels for all kids, and fun for parents, too. It has the normal swings and slides, but other fun additions, like the climbing/rolling hill and wiggly balance beam, really make it a memorable park. There...More

There is so much to do there. There are several different places to play for all ages. Everything is clean and doesn’t look worn. It can get very crowded on weekends, so be prepared.

Common Ground is great but there have been many, many car breakins the last two months as reported in SpotCrime. Please lock up your valuables.

Yes. There are several picnic tables, or you can also picnic on the grass. There are also open air pavilions that you can use, if they are not already reserved for parties.
