Great place to take my active grandsons for a day of play. Love that it's self-contained so I don't have to worry about them running out into traffic. Fantastic playgrounds, walking paths, picnic areas plus the museum give us lots of options for our day.

We like to grab a quick to-go lunch and find a shady place to park and eat. Our grandson really enjoyed the playground equipment areas when he was younger, now fishing is his favorite activity.

They love the playground equipment and get to meet new kids, as well as burn off a lot of energy. We especially loved the train ride although it ended way too soon!

What a nice area that the city set aside for public use instead of building houses or businesses there. It is a pretty large place and even on an overcast day there where still many people there.

We have been here several times biking or catching a ball game. Nice place. Traffic getting out can be difficult at times.
