  • I used to go here all the time as a kid. I never got bored since there was so much to see. there is a river and some historic places as well. It is a good place to walk but is also good to bring...

  • Trails lead to the water. Not very well marked but an easy hike with beautiful views of the river and mill.

  • Great park with nature trails & waterfalls !
  • A large park with decent pavilions/shelters for groups. Ample parking. While we were there, one of two bathrooms was closed. Then that second bathroom closed because the toilet was clogged. I was ready to write a brutal review of the park, but on a Saturday afternoon, a repair person got both bathrooms working, cleaned, and reopened. Good effort on a weekend. There's shopping near the park entrance, making it convenient to buy things you may have forgotten to bring. So, good location, facilities, and maintenance.
