  • We really enjoyed this park, the sheer number of different trails on top of the Swamp Rabbit Trail running through it is impressive. I do agree with some of the other comments that there was trash...

  • What a great place! There are paved and unpaved trails, the unpaved trails are well maintained and easy to traverse. People of all ages were out enjoying the trails. The trails are all well marked. There are also little educational markers along the trails. As well as different little look out areas and benches to take a break. My favorite was the boardwalk going out into the marsh area. We saw different species of ducks, herons, turtles and fish. There's also playground area for kids and a dog park for fur kids. It's free to get in but there is a donation box which helps towards maintaining the park.
  • Great walking trail with both paved sections and non-paved sections. Very peaceful and plenty of shade. Great spot to come unwind after a busy day. Trail provides educational signs throughout. There is also a dog park large open green area and playground.
