Very nice, and relatively new, equipment for kids. Slide adn swings for different age groups. In the spring there is baseball. Picnic tables, walking trail and bike trails make this a very relaxing place.

Beautiful and safe park to run, walk or bring your kids. 6yo loves the playground. Always plenty of people around but minding their own business. Free & plenty of parking.
