  • This park is huge and is the hangout for many local families and tourists alike. It reminded me of Central Park in NY where one can sit and people watch, eat, drink, relax on the grass, and ride...

  • Nice place to walk around. The main arterial pathways from some entrances/exits are dotted with vendors. Face painting, tattoos, snacks, whatever. Lots of people after 11 am. If you want lesser people around, come early. There is a nice lake within - boat rentals available. There are lots of beautiful brown squirrels around.
  • All the way from Dallas, TX! Absolutely loved the park. Great zoo and it was free. Lots of walking - which is my favorite! There’s a big pond where you can paddle boat. Beautiful, well kept park!
