Always a good day at the faire. Prices getting high though. $10 to park, $29 per person to get in, $10-15 a drink, and food is outrageous for portions. Great entertainment, but they need to get hotel package back for those of us who come from far for this event.

Nice local wide life. Good tree selection for shade or photos. Fun place for a BBQ. I would recommend bringing bread to feed the ducks, or a kite toys to keep busy with. Swimming is always an option.

So much to do!, Great for picnics, then the bike trails, fishing and even hiking areas. There is a small water park type area for the kids too!

This park is a jewel in the city! It is hidden behind a dam, tucked away from busy city scene. If you are not looking for it, you wouldn't know it is here. Once you turn in, the area opens up and the lake, the green grass, and the mountain are in sight. It is beautiful. This park also has... More

It's been over 7 years since I attended a Faire at this location. I recall the first year it moved from Devore. It was small and not what I and many other Faire goers were used too. They have done a fine job of expanding and encompassing what this great park has to offer.
