This park is really good for riding a bicycle, playing catch with the kids, or having a picnic. It is a pleasant spot for a power walk. People are nice all the time. Not hilly, with good scenery at all. It is a perfect place to bring a big family party. There are numerous parks, duck ponds, a playground, and courts for sand volleyball. It is a nice walking or running exercise park. There is plenty of space to play and go for a stroll. There are places you can reserve ramadas as well. There are lots of tables and rooms, and open fields.
The playground area is tiny and near a pond, so you need to keep a close eye on them if you have children. It is good for athletics, picnics, meetings.
This is a wide park with a fishing lake for dessert. They did a terrific job of making it sound natural. The park looks calm. People who walk, play volleyball, care about their business.
