Great place for a walk or fishing or launching a boat. They also have pavillions for group events. The winter light show is setting up to be great.

It was a beautiful day at the park charcoal grills would have topped it off. I enjoyed looking at the memorial for the veterans reminding us of other peoples sacrifices for our country.

I go for my walks in this park every Sunday. The mosquitoes can be annoying but overall it’s a great park.

We attended an Anniversary celebration with friends and loved the layout. Great view, warm room. If you're looking for a clean room for an event, give this venue a look-see.

Beautiful, well manicured park with lots of sitting in the shade areas. Clean waterpark for the kids. Lovely water view. Many organization use it for their "walks" for charity. Very nice.

My husband and I walk frequently with our kids. They have a water play area as well as a small playground for the kids to play. They have an events center, amphitheater, pavilion, and many covered picnic areas with bbq pits.
