The park is used extensively by local photographers for graduation portraits and family portraits in a variety of natural settings. There are wetland areas there is the creek and a small waterfall. The city maintains the park very nicely.

Perfect quiet place to chill out and relax for a lunch hour or a great place to bring kids for fishing, wading or even driving the paddle boats.
