A beautiful, large park with every kind of facility and trails for beginner and advanced hikers, Palmer Park is a favorite among the locals and visitors as well. The playground areas have a lot of things which are appropriate for all ages, so you can take your toddlers to the park too, with relief.

There are two gates to the park, and if you have time, try to visit both. There are also stables and you can take a look around, its free and the people are nice.
