A small pond with paved walking trails invite you to stop by and enjoy the quiet, serenity of the outdoors as you soak up some rays along side some of the residents, which typically includes geese, ducks, and of course the turtles that accompany any body of water in the Southeast. Park benches lining the pond allows visitors an opportunity to relax and look on and various pieces of playground equipment is perfect for the little ones.
