They recently renovated the park and it's great! They added a splash pad and all new playground equipment. There are shaded picnic areas for adults to sit while the children play. Also they added restrooms right next to the playground. Previously, the restrooms were quite far the the play area. They also have separate playgrounds for the younger kids. It's a great park.

Large park with lots to do! Splash pad for the kids, soccer/football fields, duck/fishing pond, multiple playgrounds etc. Always well maintained and I never have any trouble with the people that go there. Mostly families and people walking dogs.

Our family loves this park. It has a splash pad for the summer, three separate playgrounds for different ages and recreational fields for sports. We love feeding the ducks as well.
