Went on a weekday afternoon, about 3PM. Children's playground was overflowing with kids of all ages, some with little or no adult supervision, which made it a dangerous place where little kids could be run over by the larger kids (note this was the middle of spring recess for the local schools). The rest of the park was crowded but... More

We love spending Sunday afternoons at Freedom Park occasionally. I thought the kids had outgrown the playground area but they added a Panthers-themed fitness play area for older school aged children and they love it! The park amenities offer such a wide variety of activities that we are always able to keep our children occupied or we can just enjoy... More

Had the park basically to ourselves on a beautiful rainy day. Very clean park. Met a fisherman there that caught a catfish and spoke of the cleanliness of the water and multitude of different species in the lake.

We visited Freedom Park last weekend. We are a family of five with three kids under 10. We packed our bikes, scooters, football, soccer ball, and a picnic. We did it all! While this park will not win awards from landscape designers and conservation groups, it was a fantastic oasis for our kids to explore and be carefree. We are... More
