  • Both playgrounds are modern, safe, and well kept. The splash pad is also a blast for kids and the bathrooms are clean enough. Litter is a slight issue, but the park maintenance team seems to work hard to keep litter to a minimum. Updates are being added, and the Park just keeps getting better!
  • Great family fun!!! Had my family reunion there and we had a ball. The splash park is ideal for all ages. The play area has lots of different features. The picnic areas a spacious and mostly shady. Great place and lots of fun for the whole family!!!************
