Many miles of walking trails guide visitors over moss- and fern-covered stone bridges and past bubbling creeks. You can enjoy the fishing pond, tennis courts, athletic fields, and playgrounds on offer in this lush haven.

  • Absolutely one of the most beautiful parks I've ever been too! There are so many places to hike up here. By that I mean there are a lot of trails. And then the waterfall is my most absolute favorite part! It's so incredibly beautiful. I just love waterfalls and the smell of the water. And I got to experience it with my family. I can't wait to go here again.
  • Beautiful and peaceful for all. Natural serenity. For those of you that have not had the pleasure of visiting this place. It has a park with a covered area as well for gatherings. The waterfall, a hiking trail, and a hatchery. Usually with salmon.
