Went on a weekend in April, sunny day, and surprised there were so few people there. A variety of activities - good playground, fishing, frisbee golf, trails to walk around the lake, picnic tables. Trails a little rough for a wheelchair but manageable.

Anson B. Nixon Park is a little jewel in the heart of Kennett Square. It's great place for family picnics, take a walk with your children and dogs or play ultimate frisbee. In the summer, the park hosts free concerts on Wednesday nights.
