Lots of people, a decent trail, a playground, etc. They usually have some sort of festival going on here.

for a park in the middle of town. There is a long walking path, that goes around a small pond at the north end of the park. There are also several picnic areas and two dog parks, so it's a great local find.

Great place to relax, exercise or take the kids and unwind. Playgrounds and Paths, fishing. A nice wooded shaded area to walk as well as open fields for football and soccer.

Nice trail to run or walk on....usually quiet. Check for events at the stadium parking can get crazy...if something is going on. There are usually homeless people in the woods around the lake but they have always been harmless they feed the stray cats.
