  • Great trails for walking, running, biking with great views that run through marshes Ann's along river! Super Nature Center that is kid friendly and free with friendly knowledgeable staff. Walk to food, shopping, movies. Overall great place for yourself, a date, family and friends to get outside at minimal to zero cost!
  • It's a nice place. A little bit of wildlife in the city. View of the city in the distance is great. There are 2 little trails, one in the woods and one over marsh. They have stations that teach about nature. They tend to leave a bowl of water for the dogs. It's really small, though. Enough to get away but not enough to explore much. Probably a good place to take a child to teach them. I teach my dogs about nature there.
