Glenn C Hilton Jr Memorial Park reviews
The walk along the river on the boardwalk was very shaded and relaxing. We even saw a deer wade into the water for a drink. The small shelter where we had our lunch was clean and well maintained... more »
This is an excellent park, some nice play equipment, plenty of parking. The far side of the park is a board walk over a wetland and there are some really neat birds out there! Apparently, they do... more »
This is a wonderful place to spend time. There is a very nice disc golf course, playground, and place to walk. There are a wide variety of birds and other wildlife you can find on a typical day. I've seen turtles running around the size of dinner plates, large frogs, and beautiful Cranes, Ducks, and Geese. There is a boardwalk that takes you on a tour through the wetlands area, and is a great place to teach your kids how to fish. The park provides food to feed the ducks and geese, so bring quarters for the kids and have fun watching all the birds flock to you. (Please dont feed them bread) The park is also great for exercise, the biggest loop around totals 1.7 Miles and includes some awesome terrain and elevation change that makes it feel like you are hiking. You'll find for much of the trail Nature swallows you and you are protected from the sun by the green canopy above. There is an area where you can access the creek and let your pup run around in the water which is a great break on the hot days. The only downsides is many people seem to smoke cigarettes that come to this park, and that can stink. People also seem to ignore the sign pointing out that there is a leash law. All in all, I would recommend this place as a great place to spend an afternoon with the family enjoying nature.
The park itself has many playgrounds. We were grateful to find one in the shade. My only complaint if the upkeep of the water way has went down hill alot! Will continue visiting it is a beautiful place I just hope the water way is cleaned up and full again!
