Recreation Park Reviews & Ratings
Awesome park! I've never been to a park so handicapable. They had a swing and merry-go-round for those in wheelchairs. They had an awesome playground my 2 and 4 yr old loved. A free carousel in a building that last longer than any I've ever paid for. Extremely diverse people, which I love. They had a pool, many paths to walk, several gazebos, massive playground. Definitely a place to take the family for an afternoon!
Had a great time too many ducks in the area, lots of tables BBQ pits, kid's play place lovely lake, well kept, even walking asphalt path, access points to River, and bike riding path for several miles if you can get a table, it's beautiful it's clean save for the duck poo. Spent the afternoon practicing for the September 19 Latin percussion open mic meet and greet.
They really did such an amazing job on the remake of the park! Tons more stuff to do,more engaging and it is definitely larger,so children aren't tripping over each other anymore. Also it is more safe with the semi-cushioned and stable wood chip base,AND is handicapped accessible now. They've given children with disabilities a chance to just be kids and have fun. So great.
Beautiful park. The 100 year old carousel is fully restored and fond memory from my youth for me. I rode it many time more than 60 years ago.
One of my favorite local parks. The kids love the carousel and the pool, and I love the new, all-inclusive playground and the garden that's there. Rec Park music fest is also always a good time ☺️
