Ate at local pizza restaurant and headed to the park. This park has everything. Near local restaurants, shore view of the river, plenty of walking space, plenty of things for kids to do, bathrooms, swings, music etc. enough activities for an entire day. Must visit.

Taking children to this place is magical. My grand daughters birthday party was held here during last summer. The kids ran and climbed and played all within view of adults. A joy to see.

Relaxing walk through the park, the town invested in this park and definately seems to be working. It seems the park is used by locals and tourist alike. Great for people watching!
