Ball fields and an aquatic center draw the largest crowds to the park, but there is also a dog park, playground, and a community center. The quiet corner surrounding the Youth Fishing Pond offers a place to ride or walk on a portion of 1.5 miles of paved trails, and watch the turtles sun along the shore. The pond adjoins the trailhead for Gayle’s Trails.
