It is so disappointing to see people throwing trash everywhere. The lake water is nasty. Play area is the only thing that is good about this place.

Went there mid week so not many people. Has a very nice playground for all age children. Wildlife museum very small, but lots of turtles to see in the pond. Has picnic table and a large field for children to run.
