    They've xerascaped large sections of the park with Prairie grasses and shrubs, making it very hospitable to wildlife, especially on summer evenings.

    An unofficial dog park. You 'can' let your dog off leash, be careful it's not legal, but the police won't hassle you if you clean up poop, stay out of the forbidden areas

    They do multiple fireworks displays on 4 July but get here early (4 pm) to get a good spot.

    They're just kidding about that no dogs off leash sign. Go on, do it.

    One of the nicest parks I've ever been in. When the wildflowers are in bloom late spring/early summer in the natural prairie areas is the best.
