I've grown up going to this park, and I absolutely love it! It's clean, and has lots of shade which is especially nice in the summer time! It has nice tennis courts, a nice track, a cool playground and its overall, really lovely!

I lived walking distance from this park for many years and loved taking walks there. There's a path that goes around a large field where there is often sports going on so there's lots to see while you are walking. There's also a playground area...More

Love the secured playground and track nearby. I've been coming here since my first baby, a spunky shih-tzu over 8yrs ago. Now for the past few years we've been bringing our 7 and 4 yr old. It's best to go on an offpeak weekday time...More

Beautifully landscaped, clean, and safe, it has the look and feel of a slice of New York's Central Park! There is also plenty of things to do. It's a real gem!

Alcohol is prohibited at the park, but if you're discreet the police don't bother you.
