If you are taking your family, there are plenty of amenities that they can enjoy, including a playground, picnic area, and campground with adjacent bathrooms.
Old Town Aquatic Park

Many people enjoy College Street Park because it is a convenient place to experience the natural beauty of the area without a long drive. You can visit the park on a whim or plan some time to get out of the city, even if only for an hour or two.
