When the park was established here about. 10 years ago. it -vas considered one of the best setip's in the country for a town of tills size with the lake used for ixnt- ]|>K.

Criticism (hat the park can not be kept in good condition, because of vandals, is countered with opinion, that if improved and properly maintained, (hat use by worthwhile citi7,cns would curb vandals, and that people being there, lights and policinc would stop destruction of equipment.
