    The Top 4 amenities used in the park are:

    1. Walking Paths (93.1%)

    1. Playground (69.4%)

    1. Bathrooms (67.4%)

    1. Picnic Tables/Shelter (57.6%)

    When asked if more walking trails are wanted 52.4% answered “absolutely”.

    We also asked if outdoor fitness equipment should be added and 62.9% said yes. Exercise stations could be added near the playground.


    Written comments express concerns regarding vandalism and illegal activity. We are coordinating with other City departments on how to best address these concerns and make the park a safe place for all to enjoy.
