    This is Adriber I will always provide the best and honest reviews. This is a beautiful big park. Great place to have a picnic and ride your bikes, skate or run. And see enjoy the view of an animal walk by you such as a chipmunk, chicken, turkey or peacock and so on. The children play ground is nice not very big but nice for them to have fun. Great spot to have party's I even seen weddings. Just a reminder don't trash the park. The park is right next to a college facility and firefighter station. You can also enjoy a book at the library all next...Read More

    I've been looking around the area for photo shoot locations, and this place really fits the bill.

    It's clean, it's green, and it has a bunch of different nice-looking spots. There are benches, tables, grills, trees, vintage buildings, a play set, gardens, and a kind of staging area. There are cats, too! I think they're stray, but they're very friendly and fairly clean. The place doesn't stink like you might expect with stray cats around, either.

    I plan on coming back here many times in the future both for photo shoots as well as just nice days...Read More

Great spot to have party's I even seen weddings. Just a reminder don't trash the park. The park is right next to a college facility and firefighter station. You can also enjoy a book at the library all next to the park. The only suggestion to the park is that I really don't like how they have the soccer field and baseball field lock up. When I see does sections in the park it make you feel like for an instant your in a 3rd world country park. It would be nice to make them accessible to the public. As always I'm the firm believer of quality over quantity. This is my review and remember always look for adriber for the best and honest review.
