What people are saying!
Awesome place to get away from the city with the family. Great times with kind and welcoming people. Highly recommended. You can choose to leave a donation but admission is free otherwise. Parking is also included.
The atmosphere was superb. The people I met were friendly and I could see myself staying all the way till 2 am with music, dancing, meat and libations. I am sad to have left early and can’t wait to visit again.
It’s a good atmosphere! They have food there which you can make your own bbq at a good price. The park is huge and full of friendly people, there is a huge stage where you can dance, being there it felt like I was on vacation in another place, it felt really nice, it was my first time and I am going back with family members to have birthday day party, it’s perfect for those occasions!!!!
Good basketball court!
Always a great time! Been there every year for 15 years!
