Located on the banks of Mill Creek, this park features a large number of tall trees that provide shade on hot days, and a very good environment away from city noise.
The park has a large covered picnic facility, a playground, scattered picnic tables, and a trail that runs along the creek for a brief distance to the southeast, and provides people with the atmosphere of a much more wild place.
This is the site of some of the events surrounding the "Homer Davenport Days" festival.
