Our family goes to the park mostly to ride on the biking trails. Very nice and well kept. Did a presentation once in the park to children for a nursing project. Lots of open areas with big beautiful trees and streams. Will definitely be back.

One restroom is between the playground and the pond. It is less than 0.10 of a mile.
