The entire park is a equally pleasant with large trees, wide curving walks, large open spaces, and a classic 1930's swimming pool cabana.”

“This funny neighborhood feature is a short walk away. Walking down Denver Avenue will take you through downtown Kenton (coffee, restaurants, library, shopping). Our kids love his "Big Boots" and "Looking up his nose." When we walk away they ask for "More Paul Bunyan!" Plus the Max will go by at some point and everyone can check out "the train!"”
