  • A great park for a walk, whether solo, in tandem or with the family. Paved trails (mostly) throughout - but they can be bumpy so if you've got a stroller, wheelchair or scooter, keep your heads up for some uneven parts. The mosquitoes can get bad in the summer so don't forget the bug juice. If you're a runner this is an awesome start and end point for a run. Run loops in the park or run West to the bridge and back. Lots of nice lookout points and bencehs scatered throughout. If you're into Geocaching there's a couple caches here for you. If you're into Pokemon Go...well...I can't help you...just don't fall into the river. During the winter pay close atention, parking lots and trails can get icey - bring cleats or snowshoes. Beautiful winter views; don't forget to make a snow angel!
  • Lots of Pokemon Go Lures however no Pokemon!!! Kiwanis park is better for that. Park is nice tho paths are bad in the rain.
  • Amazing park. Lots to discover here. Look at the trees for some neat wood carvings.
  • Lots of nature, lots of trailed. Really awesome place for someone who likes sitting by the river and look at 100 year old tress and understand the environment. Do check out the rail museum next door.
  • Good trails for a good walk along the river
