There are picnic tables and benches scattered throughout the acreage. 

We have a special place in our hearts for children of all ages.  We love it when families come to the Park.  We are committed to making the Park kid friendly and offer educational activities throughout the year.

We are happy to allow people to reserve the park for a private function and we ask for a donation for use of the property.  If you are interested, click on "use of the park" on the left. When you reserve the park we close it to all other visitors for your exclusive use and privacy.  We can accommodate small parties up to ~100 guests. 

Pets are welcome at the Park provided they are leashed and owners provide and use pet disposal bags.  We love good dogs, not "bad ones." 

The park is open to the public from dawn to dusk throughout the year.
