Park Description

This 24 acre neighborhood park includes a developed portion and a large natural area. In 1988, the City received a donation of approximately 15 acres of floodplain property on Dairy Creek. Subsequently, through donation and purchase, additional parcels were added so the park now provides eighteen acres of natural area and six acres of park area. Construction of the park started in June 2003 and finished with a dedication celebration on May 11, 2005.

The developed portion of the park has paved walking paths, a basketball court, a playground, a softball field with soccer field overlay, artificial turf inserts on the soccer field goal areas, two parking areas, open lawn for play and picnicking, and extensive landscaping and lighting in the parking and main path areas.

The park has an open and inviting feel, with a variety of features set against the backdrop of woodland in the creek corridor. Paved paths provide easy access throughout the park and soft-surface pathways provide access to the natural area along the creek. The park can be accessed via two entrances located on along SW Walnut Avenue. An accessible restroom is available.
