We really loved this park. We took our niece (6) and nephew (4) for an afternoon of swimming. The 4 start instead of 5 it's because while the park was very nice, it was also pretty crowded. It differs from other lakes in the area as it is a small, man-made swimming pond. There is also a lifeguard on duty. The kids had a blast playing with their water guns, swimming around while "looking for sea creatures," and building sand castles all afternoon.
An unexpected pro is that this swimming pond is wheelchair accessible! Not only is there accessible parking and an accessible bathroom - the actual pond is accessible. There is a wheelchair ramp for entry into the pond. The beach portion (not the ramp) is sand but also offers a much easier entry/slower & smoother increase in depth than many of the local lakes.
There are plenty of trees for shade, picnic tables, and grills around the pond. The parking lot was pretty full the day we visited, but there was ample parking.
