went here as a kid many times for school trips. It's still just as beautiful, peaceful and clean as it ever was. The car museum located in the park is excellent, brings you to another time and place. Really nice place.

This is not a crowded park and it does not stand out as much, but it is nice and relaxing. Good if you want to be away from the crowd.
