I went for a jog down Fountain Creek Regional Park & stopped here to get some water. I plugged my phone into a socket and was using it for just 5 minutes. I was rudely told to unplug my phone and leave. I own my own business and the way I was treated was extremely rude. I do not recommend visiting this park if you want to be treated as an equal. Very disappointing

Amazing little trail during the summer time. Easy to access a park and a lake. Kid friendly and they have free activities for the kids.
