The wide open park is good for many uses with connections to trails, playgrounds, ball diamonds, disc golf course and community maintained skating rinks in the winter. The train and merry go round are good for younger kids in the summer months.

They have a very nice, new kids playground that has something to offer for a variety of ages. Very clean. Working restrooms. Just watch out for all the goose poop - geese were everywhere and totally ignored the humans at the park. Huge parking lot.

I love this park which is adjacent to the speed river. Usually lots of people out doing the same thing. The park connects to a trail if you cross Woodlawn road...very pretty spot.
