I think this is a great place to either BBQ with friends, go for a long walk or bike. There is a zoo on site and multiple play areas for children. A great family trip!

The overall park is pretty nice, there is good walking area right on the water and of course they have a very mini zoo. The animals are fine, some could be looked after a little better (chickens were getting pecked like crazy and bloody). This...More
