  • Great place to walk, run, or read a book. Very, very tranquil setting to reflect and enjoy nature and decompress. When you explore the “park” and its generous trails and observation decks, it’s hard to believe how close it is to Gainesville. The prairie is gorgeous from this perspective.

  • Great park and great facilities. My suggestion is that if you go that you go either early in the day or late in the afternoon as there is not much canopy and not much cover on the trails. I would also bring some water as there are no or rather is no water out on the trails once you get away from the parking area. It also cost five dollars per vehicle and two dollars per person to park in the area.
