    A large park near everything in the NW Downtown area. If you're a skater, you'll love the city's skatepark!

    Running trail is fun. Picnic loop is good for knocking out some road bike miles and the mountain bike trails are good

    Great park for walking or jogging, but not during 'Prime Time', between 4 to 7pm or so, during the week..parking is a bitch! Use the bathroom at the clubhouse before walking..avoid portapotties!
