Public clay tennis courts for a fee. Larry Sack does a great job setting up matches and lessons . You can show up 9 am and there is usually a group looking to play .

The zoo is well maintained, has a good variety of animals. The day we visited, they were offering a behind the scenes look at the elephant and giraffe enclosure that was really interesting. Had 2 kids, 8 & 4, both enjoyed it.

Love this park; it is a beautiful park with gorgeous walking and bike riding paths. You can watch the children play, stop at the zoo or just walk or bike ride around the park. On a beautiful day, it is the place to go!

I am a photographer and love taking wedding pictures here. This is a great place to walk with kids and feed the ducks, go to the zoo, take a stroll on the duck paddle boats, exercise, or just take in nature.

It's a great stress reliever. Whenever I used to feel sad, I would come here amidst nature and lakes and relax. It's beautiful in suffer and winter time. In winters the lake freezes and it's an awesome experience.
