This is a nice city park with open spaces, named specimen trees, benches and a pond. Numerous functions are held here during the year.

Somebody recommend that place for my family but they didn't mention the parking is too far so we searched about parking, it was too far from park. This park is good for people living around the park otherwise total waste of time

The park was beautiful. We visited because we are Wilcox descendants and wanted to see what the town was like. The park was really relaxing and there were a lot of families taking advantage of the many areas.
