This park has everything in it. The playground os great. The nature trils and duck pond make you feel like you are in the middle of the country but you are not. You should stop there if in the area.

You bet! There is a dogs only fenced section infact, on the other side of the parking lot for the baseball fields. But they can play anywhere people can.
