Joyner park is a great place for a family picnic. We love to take our dog for a leisurely walk. Our church group goes here four or five times a year and a touch football game usually develops.

I love the facts that trails were marked to indicate what wild life one can witness. It's great for power walker like myself, or family with kids, or dog walkers, hikers, etc.

I love this quaint little park. We love it so much, my daughter is getting married here in May. They only charge $15 per hour with a 100$ deposit to keep the area clean which is refundable.

I visit frequently to walk and train my dog. I enjoy the asphalt walking trails with loops within loops so that one can take a long walk or a short walk quite easily. Lots of family activity and dog walkers.
