  • Small network of trails. Overall trail system runs in a loop. Trails are well maintained and on average run across rolling terrain. There are a couple of pavilions with picnic tables on the trail system. We like to take lunch/dinner with us, eat, then hike a couple of miles (a couple of laps). There is also a small nature center onsite that the kids enjoy visiting.
  • We were meeting another couple to see if our dogs could get along. The Park was very nicely kept, very clean. The lawn was trimmed so that the grass wasn't too tall and the tree limbs weren't overtaking the walking trails yet they still provided plenty of shade and allowed a small breeze in. There were quite a bit more people than I expected for a Monday evening, but I guess that's good for the business. We enjoyed the time here greatly, and if I understood my furbaby correctly, she did as well!
