  • This is a great park to just take a walk, pack a picnic and enjoy. Meet up with friends or go with your walking group. Create a scavenger hunt with the kids for summer fun. There are sidewalks most of the way from local neighborhoods, but be sure to wear proper shoes for the off-road trails. Makes it easy to get to on foot. There’s a small parking area as well. Staff is generally available to answer questions during the week. This park is a true gem!
  • First and foremost this is truly a nature trail so dress accordingly! Make sure you have the right shoes and I suggest long pants. Even though you can hear and see the traffic you will get turned around (or at least I did) but since it's a small Park it's no big deal. Just double back and you'll find your way. Not a place to get a fast walk in as there no paved roads. It is definitely a place to get away and clear your mind and listen to the birds chirping and the leaves crunching under your feet.
