This small park is a great place to have a picnic, and explore a stream. Kibby Creek flows through the park. There is a small bridge over the creek. For a small park it has interesting topography with a steep hill at the back side of the park which is held in place with a stone retaining wall. An appealing spot for a family picnic.
Picnicking- a few picnic tables and grills on mowed lawn
