This park is one of the most popular parks since it’s located right on the river in the city where folks can swim and get out of their tubes or kayaks higher up on the river. It’s a great location for soccer games, playgrounds and pavilions for picnics with a large bathroom house. It was just buzzing with people as they BBQ’ed by the riverside and enjoyed staying cool in the water on the hot summer day I went there.

DANGER!!! When we have had heavy rains, people think they are good enough swimmers when the current is strong. Don’t underestimate the power of the water!! Several people have drowned at this park because of this misunderstanding.
