I used to enjoy going here. Overall, if you want to keep up with how many miles you get in, one full lap around the lake is one mile. Be careful where you step as there are many ducks and they "go" wherever they are, which is usually on the walking path area. I'd go through the weekday because some "undesirables" tend to hang out on the weekends with loud music. Not really a place a lady should be walking alone, I would say. The water is nice to look at and a nice breeze most days. There is a playground on one side but stay and watch your children! Dogs not allowed. There are picnic tables and a few benches but not many. Not the safest park and the surrounding neighborhood is definitely NOT safe.

I think that this park is very beautiful and nice for the kids and for the family. The ducks and the pond are a very nice touch. I like the track or the walking trail which ever you would like to call it.

This park need to add more security and sanitation staff. I didn't like the looks of it. Needs more tender care and 'no smoking' signs.

Great place years ago, shabby atmosphere, poor use of your
time, little unsafe, low interest, not city's finest

The water is nice to look at but it's lacking in seating and beautification. It isn't the safest feeling park. Could use a lot of improvements.
