Just asked the experts,my 7 and 8 years olds. One said Tilles the other said Rocket ship Park (Deer Creek). I would agree that they are two of my favorites in the area. I like them both for their different qualities.

Me too, Drea! Shaw Park is so spacious, lots of fun playground equipment and, as you said, good fencing for the kids. Walking trails are good for burning off energy, too.
