This is a nice pond that you can circumnavigate on a gravel walking trail. We saw a number of geese (including a white one) and their droppings--watch your step! Geese aren't much afraid of people so you can get a nice photo of them if you wish. There are some benches and picnic tables too. It's a pleasant walk very... More

The park is large with many old trees, a beautiful pond and an island with picnic tables, grills and a shelter. In sesaon in 2016 there is an excellent and beautifully laid out Farmers Market on Saturday morning in one corner of the park. A real treat for anyone who loves great fresh food.

We circle the pond several times each week There are benches to sit on so we seniors can rest. The ducks and geese are fun to watch and we always meet interesting dog people and their dogs.

Nice walk around a horseshoe shaped pond. Paved walkway which you will need if it has been raining as parts of the area can be rather damp.

Great place to break from work or any other reason you may be at the nearby hospital. I've walked it twice so far and both times were very pleasant.

This pond has a great parking lot, play ground equipment and a paved trail that completely encircles the pond. The birds on the pond add to the scenery and so do the few fishermen. The city supplies doggie poo bags and places to dispose of the full bags. It is great at sunset when the day is slowing down. To... More
