Great park with a nice playground, athletic fields and Greenway access! Sometimes parking can be an issue.

This is a pretty nice park, it has a little shelter with a couple of grills, you can have a party here. I don't know if you can reserve it or if you just first come first serve it. Reason for three stars is it takes a long time for anything to get fixed. Right now some of the little cog wheels that kids can play with are completely stuck and have been for several months. Something else always seems to be broken, and sometimes hazardous. There are a bunch of ball fields around and I'm not sure who plays there. But those fields are usually busy with kids playing sports. I can entertain a 3-year-old and an 8-year-old here for about 30 minutes to an hour max.

It's a very nice park. Very well kept. It is very busy so not enough parking. People just park wherever they want. But I really like it.

Great park for all ages. Great space and something for all the kids. They also have 2 to 3 baseball fields and soccer fields in the park.

Lots of space to share. Though groups reserve for practice, they are typically willing to share a corner for our fencing group. Field tends to stay soft along the edges for days and days after a rain.

Nice park to start an American Tobacco Trail ride from. Safer that Trail parking lots, and bathrooms and water as well.

Awesome soccer, baseball, and football field. Great place for practices and games! There is also a playground, shelter, and swing set.

Excellent park for fields and baseball and batting with an old but usable bathroom and water fountains. Great access to tobacco trail but very poor shade everywhere like the kids playground.

Great park facility. Fields are well maintained and it's only 100 yards to the American Tobacco Trail.

We love to take the kids here to play on the playground, ride their scooters and walk on the trail. Family fun place!

City park on land furnished by the Herndon family. Specialty here is ballfields. Restrooms open during warmer seasons, port-a-johns during colder seasons. The park also serves as a trailhead for the American Tobacco Trail.
