Didn't get to spend a lot of time here but it's a beautiful park especially with the changing leaves. They have a fantastic outdoor play area for kids. No swimming in the small lake that I saw. Restrooms are inside the park office lobby. A porta potty is available in the parking lot at the lake.
Peaceful. Nice walk around the lake. People are friendly on the trail. Also appreciated the clean bathrooms being open despite the Nature center being closed.
