Nice to have this park in the center of town. It's well-used and loved and needed to provide some green space in the midst of all the pavement.

Playground is a favorite place to take kids. A nice array of play equipment without being overwhelming or overly complicated. Good picnic areas and adjacent to the public library. Grounds are nice place to stroll for all ages.

Nothing special, but it's always goog to have a park in a densely-developed area. Could use a better design.
