More of a dog park as it has a large dog area. My young girls were not impressed with the playground area. But overall it's a very safe and friendly park. Sit and read or walk/ run it's nice.

Seems like it is a popular place for dog owners to take their four legged friends here. The park isn't very large, however it is still nice and peaceful with only limited amounts of traffic on the roads surrounding the park.

There's tons of grass and big shade trees. It's perfect for running around with your dog or the kids or both. It would be just like any other large park except there are a couple of giant statues in it.
