Free to get in. Plenty of parking in different parts of the park. Two dog parks where you can let them off the leash to run around and play with other dogs or chase balls. Hiking trails are fairly easy. Two small lakes to fish in with a variety of fish. Picnic areas can be reserved for parties. Softball fields, volleyball, horse shoes, children's play grounds, frisbee golf. Plenty to do for a fun day to unplug the kids from their video games and enjoy nature.
