An intimate, open space for festivals and concerts, the Waterworks festival lawn park is the perfect spot for small or medium-sized concerts or performances.
It is called Waterworks Park because of the amazing splash pad with the enormous bucket drop that regularly tips and drenches everyone nearby. Children simply love it!
The playground features a jungle gym with slides, a spring-loaded dolphin teeter-totter, a rope climber with a crows-nest pirate tower, and much more...all atop a padded ground to minimize injuries from falls.
Queenie's Dog Park is a shady, fenced dog park that is perfect for large or small dogs. One large dog or two small (30 lbs. and under) dogs per person at one time. Dogs must be at least 6 months old and display County license tags. More...
