Oh. What a beautiful place right in the middle of a busy hustling bustling city. Went on a cool, breezy day. Was amazing. It's so Serene and quiet. I could walk here and explore nature all day long. People come to fish, dogs have fun in the water as well. There are two options you can choose. One route takes you in the jungle with no proper trail board to walk on and the other one is mainly paved road, but the view is pretty anyway.
I've been running in this park for 25 years. It is so beautiful and a perfect place to run, walk, ride bikes and hike. There are many challenging hiking trails and a many beautiful features like the red covered bridge, the Valley Green (restaurant) and Cedars House. Very family friendly, and furry friend friendly.
