  • So pretty here! Great walking paths. Cool events sometimes.
  • This beautiful park is just a few minutes away from downtown and it's 100% worth talking a walk through! There is enough land/woods that you feel far away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. I parked across the street at the school since it was a weekend and I'm not sure where else to park since it looks very limited on the road. I really like the area where it opens up to a clearing and there is a huge rock/cliff. I was able to climb the cliff without any issue but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone because it was pretty risky(albeit extremely satisfying).
