Great park with lots of things to do, from fishing and paddle boating to family BBQ. Renaissance Faire is here from March to May which is also a lot of fun. Remember that the speed limit is 15 mph in the park!

I jog and bike ride at night after 6 and park on the street for free. Otherwise parking is free. This place is great for a anytime run, jog or bike ride along the trails. Below there is a park and a lake that's open...More

This was a nice shady park. Lots of grown trees. Open space and enough room for lots of people. Very clean and well kept.

Santa Fe Dam host a popular event every last Friday of the month. Night fishing, camping, bum fires and family fun. All nice and good. 16 years and younger enter free. $10 adults. You need to have a fishing license as well. Why the warning?...More

A total rip off! $10 to park....no big deal, kinda expected that. Super crowed (can't see why). Entry into the faire near $30 each and aside from a few child type backyard games, everything costs additional money. Basically you pay to walk around in the...More

Always a good day at the faire. Prices getting high though. $10 to park, $29 per person to get in, $10-15 a drink, and food is outrageous for portions. Great entertainment, but they need to get hotel package back for those of us who come...More

Nice local wide life. Good tree selection for shade or photos. Fun place for a BBQ. I would recommend bringing bread to feed the ducks, or a kite toys to keep busy with. Swimming is always an option.

So much to do!, Great for picnics, then the bike trails, fishing and even hiking areas. There is a small water park type area for the kids too!
