  • I have come here for two years in a row during the summer... It's always a nice place to relax and take pictures. Good atmosphere and tons of activities going on to get involved with. Recommend as a nice place to relax and possibly have a picnic :)
  • A very cute intersection of city and nature. There’s a little waterfall, I saw a huge white-tailed bird, dragonflies, geese. There’s a more naturey trek just over the bridge. There’s lots of grass, tables, and benches to camp out but I found a huge boulder to have lunch 10/10 would recommend!
