So different from the way things were around there when I was a kid. It used to be just a field, and you could hang out near the river. Now they've built all kinds of things for kids to do. It's very helpful to the community.

Cool place. I don't live in Urbana but I go once a month to do work for a few places. And this is a great place to chill for a bit and eat lunch.

Awesome disc golfing at this location. Has some really cool shots. I feel someone with very little experience could still enjoy this course along with get a grasp on what disc golf has to offer in terms of shots required to overt obstacles. Just a fun course. Won't take you long to play a round if u wanna get in a qwik one

Quaint little park with a variety of areas to enjoy. Public pool, baseball, softball, and soccer fields, basketball courts, disc golf course, walking and running paths, volleyball, plenty of green space to spread out and enjoy the lake, watching children play on park apparatuses. There is a fence enclosed dog park, and a safety town for preschool and kindergarten that is offered by local safety personnel to teach street safety for walking and bicycling. Calming and peaceful as well as activities abound.

Nice place to take children fishing. We know there is at least one BIG fish in the pond, because it broke my granddaughter 's line! The playground is nice also. Good place to just sit and relax.
