Expansive park with many facilities such as playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball fields and walking paths. Very shady with lots of picnic tables. In summer their is even a small, children’s wading pool to cool off. Their is a bathroom facility with vending machines with snacks and drinks. Nicely mulched and very clean with a variety of unique equipment. Lots of natural rock settings and my 5 year old son enjoyed climbing rocks and walking along the circular paths even. The only negative was their was no parking lot and it was residential street parking so was a little difficult on a week day afternoon after school.
