We spent a few hours here walking on the nice and shady trails. We even ventured on a few of the bike trails just to get a feel of the terrain. My favorite trail was along the creek on the southwest part of the park.

Nice park. Nice benches and tables for the adults to sit on while the kids played. Lots of grass and enough colorful safe and clean play equipment for the smaller kids to play on. Lots of visibility so they could play and run and still be seen easily. Clean restrooms close by. Paved parking.

Have used the softball fields here a few times and they are nice and smooth. The whole "park" has grown tremendously over the last few years and there is something for everyone here: Baseball, softball, playground, water park, concessions during events, public restrooms, etc.

Very nice family park, with playgrounds for toddlers and older children. The spraygrounds were also nice to help with the heat. I liked the fact that they had shaded picnic table areas. The restrooms were quite clean and close enough to the park to avoid accident.

This park is nice. They have a great splash pad and pretty nice park. The park is clean, has restrooms, and water fountains. They also have a trail. The splash pad is directly in the sun, so hot days are not so good as a parent and there is fair amount of benches.

In addition to the baseball fields, play areas and fishing pond, this park has a pleasant surprise on the other side (west) of the road. A gravel parking lot sits beside the entrance to a beautiful hiking and biking trail. The trail winds through the trees and near Mud Creek. It has a number of loops for a total of... More

We go on short hikes with the dogs at Fulkner Park, they have a good gravel trail and many options for other activities. The splash park is great in the summer, kids enjoy it and I don't mind taking them even though the parking is a bit limited in that area. Softball and baseball fields are really good, we don't...

My husband and son travel the trails often. We decided to go after church one Sunday afternoon. We were on the trails for about 2 hours. When we returned, there were several cars that had their windows smashed and various items stolen. After discussing with others, this seems to happen quite often. My husband later heard that a police sub... More
