  • The facility is medium size. 2.5.22 Home Show was a disappointment. We were interested in landscaping. Only one vendor. My guess is many companies cannot hire workers because of government handouts, no one wants to work. Loved the metal art work.
  • Great venue for cross country races. It's nice to have seats to watch the finishline from that are protected from the sun. Challenging course as well. Clean restrooms. Parking is $5 for most major events.
