Beautiful park in the middle of town on the near west side. Large, well-maintained. Great kids play area, tennis courts, 2 mile walking/running route around the park. Rose garden and beautiful carillon.

I had never heard of Belltowers before and was very impressed with the size of the bells and the beauty of the music they play. We took the tour and listened to the concert and also enjoyed the flowers and plants
