To the person complaining that you fell and City Lake is saying you do did not have the proper footwear...kudo's to City Lake! If you are an adult and cannot wear proper footwear...that is on you. My kids and I have been going to this park since my son was 3 (he is now 20) and none of us have ever been hurt nor have we fell! This is a great park, with great people and it is very safe. It makes me sad when people want to try to get something for nothing! I am going back today and taking my friends 3 children and we all know what footwear to have on and we know we will have a blast!
