Nice park to take a stroll. I would recommend in the mornings when the temperatures reach 100s. The park is clean. There are paddle boats. The park also has festivals at times.

Thanks! We hope you had a great time. It's also really beautiful here at night when the lake reflects so many lights. Stop by again!

My Family had such a great time on the beach. From walking to seeing all the beautiful buildings in the back drop. There was some sort of festival going on which brought a very nice friendly crowd. My teens really loved taking pictures.

I wouldn’t want to swim in that water. It’s stinky. Besides, there’s boats going around. Don’t want to be hit by one.
