My daughter was looking for a different vibe for her senior pictures. Apparently she had seen too many previews of classmate photos in the park or a farmers field. She said she wanted edgy, industrial and old. We found plenty of backdrops to get some...More

We went here on an odd nice day in November. There are about 6-7 swings for bigger kids and 2 for babies. Our 6 year old LOVED it because it was different. There was construction going on next to the park. So it was kind...More

I've never seen anything like this. Tire swings bolted to a bridge with sand underneath. My 7 yr old loved it. Nice Wooden deck overlooking the water to walk across.

I think so. I don't remember seeing any signs that say otherwise. It's an open park so idk who will stop you.
