Every December for the past 7 years my family and I drive about an hour to come to see the park to see the Christmas lights. It's a great place to see a great display of lights from the safety and warmth of your personal vehicle. The best part is that it is free, though donations are accepted. It's well... More

The tennis courts are by far the best in our town. The rental boats are not expensive and in excellent repair. The freebie golf is the best in town, and the volley ball sand courts are perfect. A great place to walk, boat, tennis or golf. THE GRASS IS WELL MAINTAINED and the Christmas season lights are spectacular. The geese... More

We met friends at the park to let our children play. We had a good time and will continue to visit the park. It would be nice if an off leash dog park was added.

This park is also the city reservoir and has playgrounds, trails and a couple of ball fields. You can even rent a row boat by the hour for very little to row around the reservoir, paddleboats too. Larger than most small city parks and recently enlarged and improved. Yes, there are several bathrooms and numerous barbecue grills around the sheltered... More

This park offers a little something for everyone and I'm not sure everyone know all the things you can do there. If you park off ring road and start the trails you have several miles of wooded trails that walk you by the water or for those adventurous ones you can go completely all the way around for a 5...

I live in the area and go to the park about every week it's great for exercise or leisure. There are walking trails, tennis courts, play grounds, several area that can be rented for party and even paddle boats. In the winter there is an awesome lights show that's free to the public. If you have time to kill it's... More

We have only been here a couple of times during the summer, but the Christmas lights they have during Christmas time are some of the best in the area - and they're free (donations accepted).

Great place to enjoy nature. Has great hiking trails around the lake. Just a good place to get away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life.

Great place to not only see beautiful scenery and historical landmarks, but is also filled with Pokemon for the Pokemon Goers. It also has nice pavilions and good bathrooms. Picnic tables and benches are scattered throughout the park along with a frisbee golf course, dog parks, and playgrounds.
