A well maintained bucholic county facility. All amenities are near perfect. Only complaint is over crowding in the playground on weekends and holidays.

Take a walk through the park any time of the year. We went in early March and enjoyed a brisk walk on the path. Midway, the park was quiet and peaceful. The scenery is an interesting break from the hustle bustle of the city.
