The park is a great choice for some outdoor fun in the Upper Delta. You'll find picnic facilities, walking trails, fishing, hiking and camping. But that’s not all. It’s a great location to do some birding. Take the kids (or kids at heart) to enjoy the playgrounds. There are also dedicated areas for softball, volleyball, horseshoes and disc golf.
