    Great place to bring the family on a hot summer day.. clean and safe.. only down side is you can only bring one bottle water for each person in your group. No outside foods or snacks allowed. They search your bags. Does get pretty crowded and not enough seating or shady areas for busy days. You can rent cabanas, but they seem to always be sold out.. Showers available and lockers also available to rent. They have a snack/food area to order and sit to eat, but very pricey.

    No frills and thrills. Just a hiking path in the desert with up and down hills. I think about 3 miles long. No water-so take your own. I enjoyed the walk, did it several times during my two week visit in Palmdale

    Stopped by the Lamont Odett Vista Point on the way home. Took in the view overlooking Palmdale Lake and the Antelope Valley and got a little fresh air to knock out the grogginess from the long drive up the 14 freeway.

    This place has planes, jets, jumbo jets, fighter jets, bombers, research aircrafts, the whole lot. Every one has a lot of history behind it. We were lucky to talk to some of the engineers that developed some of these and the stories they had were amazing. This was a very interesting visit.

    I liked that Courson Park Pool. Very comfortable for swimming.

    There were basketball nets, a shelter,benches and high lights.

    There is even a playground for the little kids.

    This is a must see!

    I wanted to see a cemetery. This was the best to see!

    Most of the people buried is with a plaque or put in a place with many others.

    There was a statue of Jesus.

    It is well taken care here!

    The librarians were very friendly.

    There were tables and chairs.

    The books were well taken care of them.

    Outside they had lots of male-up flowers.

    Worthwhile to see!

    Stores and dining outlets here are only so-so, and there are too many things that don't work simply because they're not being properly attended.

    Case in point: the kiddie rides. You hardly dare to load all those coins into the slots, because there is no guarantee they will actually operate, and apparently no way to retrieve or be reimbursed if they don't. No one seems to check on anything here.

    The indoor play area is a great idea, but again, there is a failure to follow through and make it a really good place to give little kids a break after their parents pause in or have finished shopping.

    Case in point: there doesn't appear to be an age limit, when one is badly needed. We were there with a toddler, and half a dozen really big, bullying-type older pre-teens and teenagers were running around boisterously chasing each other, nearly trampling the little ones, and constantly pushing in front of the smaller fry to use the slides, climbing structures, and other play stations.

    The parents of this older, larger kids were nowhere in sight, and the several times I politely intervened when something especially egregious was going on, with the possibility of hurting one of the little ones, brought only rude scoffing and no change in behavior.

    An appropriate age limit might be 10 years old, as the play area, by the structures it contains and the activities it provides, really is pitched to younger children, who are there with parents or caretakers monitoring them.

    I am happy that the mall owners saw fit to create such a nice space. And I do appreciate all the efforts, in this time of Covid, to keep it clean -- the space is cleared periodically so that the carpets can be vacuumed and the structures disinfected -- but that doesn't matter if you don't think its safe enough to let a child play there.

    A clearly posted age-limit, along with some occasional low-key monitoring to encourage compliance without embarrassing anyone, could help remedy the problem.

    Overall, though, people who work here need to walk through the mall spaces, including the play area, at least daily to make sure everything is running smoothly. That includes seeing to it that anything not working will be fixed promptly, and in the meantime be posted with "Out of Order" signs so that mall-goers won't continue to pump coins into stuff that doesn't work, and may not have worked for a long time.
