  • Nice playground with shaded tables. Could use better water fountains for filling up bottles. Some of the slides were closed and the equipment got really really hot in the sun. The hiking trails are nice and pretty long. Overall a nice park.
  • Nice park with a good trail system for running. Several parking lots throughout the park and pretty clean overall. Caution to run or hike in pairs, especially after dark. Some interesting characters like to use the park for different activities....The dog park is small but fairly clean as well. Bags and trash cans available for dog waste.
