Located in the county park west of the city. The park is located east of Townline Road, north of Good Hope Road and south of County Line Road.

There is a fee to enter the park. In 2005 the rates are $5/car on summer weekends and $2.50/car on summer weekdays and any day in the off-season (SEP thru mid-May). If you are a local resident you may wish to purchase an annual pass.
