There is a stream on the North end of the park with a bridge, fountain and ducks. This stream flows down into the lake at the bottom of the hill.
Fishing is allowed on the lake and while there are always a few people fishing, it’s rarely crowded.
There are also ducks and geese there that children love to feed.
Tip: Buy duck feed at the feed store versus using bread. It’s better for the ducks and the feed goes to the bottom of the nearshore lake and you can watch the ducks dive down after the feed.
Keep an eye your children around the water features.
