  • This is one of my favorite parks in the state. Was here yesterday, the park is popping with fall colors. A great place if you're looking to go out for a walk in the woods ( trails are easy to moderate) or a stroll along the paved roads with your dog. And there are many beautiful spots here to picnic along the creek. A shout out of appreciation to park staff, volunteers and visitors who keep the park and its facilities clean.
  • A beautiful park with plenty of hiking or walking trails. There is a small family friendly swimming area with toilets and changing rooms.
