Nice covered area for a picnic. Rope climbing tent. In town, 2nd & Ash. Nice place to relax. Walkaround lake. And I know you can fish, but I think it's catch & release.

This place is awesome for walk, run exercise, take the kids to play, etc. It is very clean and well maintained. There are paddle boats you can rent and also bicycles for rent. Saturdays there is a farmers market with a good variety of tables....More

We loved the setting and ambiance of this place. The play area was great for my difficult 10yr old. The rental pedal boats was great, and they have rental fishing poles as well.

My brother in law and I went fishing here....catch and release only. They have some seriously large fish in the pond! We caught several and had a good time. The park is clean and well kept...a real plus to the city!

No bike rentals are offered. The bike path on 2nd avenue is the closest bike path
