Love all the elevated trails through the woods. Great place to get out and enjoy nature. Will have to come back to this place in the future. more »
The shelter was really nice and large. We enjoyed being out there for the wedding and reception. The fans inside were nice. We will definitely use this park more in the future for children's parties and adult get togethers.
Nice clean trails. Beautiful park. We saw a busy park: people enjoying frisbee golf, birthday party, and a big community Labor Day weekend party.
