My favorite place to walk near home. Has great nature trails. You can see deer, turkey and even bats here in the evening.

Load up the trail maps on your phone for a better understanding of the layout.
Just an amazing place to stroll and enjoy deep woods, right in the middle of a city! You can see a lot of wildlife and birds. Can easily spend 2-3 hrs exploring tje trails.
