A nice park with paved paths, a lake, sculptures made from wood and concrete, sitting areas, a running/cycling track, a snack shack, trees and bushes and amazing birdsong.

I walked around the park after a trek from the central district. Traffic is very busy in this city. It's a great relief to have such a green space near the urban core. It could use some more thought..... more

This is a very nice place to go with family, friends, loved ones, and everyone in between! Entrance is free, and it is pet friendly - you're only encouraged to be careful with their behavior and dispose of their waste. Overall, very clean and in very good condition!
Do you need to feed the benches where we can sit at its dangerous to sit on the picnic table and other places as well but generally the park is a good trail to walk all around and it’s fun to have nature inside the city
