This park is incredible - the Zoo is a wonderful feature for families and, best of all, it’s free admission! There are 2 public golf courses containing 27 holes which are fun for a weekend outing...

Theater, ice skating, zoo, museums, and golf all together. I haven’t played the golf course yet, but all other activities are scenic and well done
