This is a wonderful place to visit with your family. It is a large park with several little lakes which provide opportunities for exploration and little adventures. At popular times can be difficult to park. But during the mornings and week days will not be a problem. It is also a really nice place to exercise.

I LOVE this park. It gets crowded with birthdays on weekends but otherwise is a great park. Big playground for kids. For me it's great because I walk dogs and it has great paths to walk on with beautiful scenery. Plus huge lawns to run them on. I'd give it 5 stars, but there is a lot of duck and... More

This is one of my sons favorites and let me tell you he is a park/playground expert. He has been to a lot of parks. Nice area with big picnic areas (may have to reserve them not sure) but lots of area including hills surrounding the park that my son loves to climb/ Jeff Lee, Kai Lee (playground expert)

I revisited the park. Great picinic area. The bathrooms were clean and the plumbing worked. It is a large park. The shelters are far apart so that you cannot hear any music or noise from the other shelters. Even though the temperature was 78 degrees F, there was a beautiful breeze all the time and if felt cold under the... More

I had gone with friends to a baby shower, out to several restaurants. Several days later I'd had to put all my personal belongings in a self storage in June 2012. I had been homeless for a week, so just to relax,before staying in a motel nearby. Tewinkle Park was nearby. It's a beautiful park. My dates aren't apart of... More

Get there early and you'll love the peace and quiet. It gets crowded later but before 10 am is very nice. Take the kids and let them place on the big playground area. Nice areas to walk and see the ponds and the ducks.
