I used to go running here all the time when i was in high school (~2010). It looks about the same, except the beach was completely underwater...not sure if it’s always like that nowadays. Still has giant banana spiders about. The lakes are nasty, but they always were. The big lake is completely taken over by cabbage; back in the day you could see all the fish swimming by the pier. Really wish more would’ve been done to improve this park. I always was uncomfortable going towards the back of the park when i was running alone, and nowadays I’m much stronger and faster & i have 2 large dogs, and it still made me uncomfortable going in the back to get to the river. The area is notorious for car break-ins, so hide ANYTHING visible, even chargers and cheap sunglasses.
