  • This was my first trip back since I was a kid and it was terrific. Way more beautiful than I remember. Lots of new trails and walkways meandering through the ravine. It was the perfect Sunday afternoon stroll on a brisk autumn day.
  • Such a beautiful park. Great facilities for the kids. Wide, stroller friendly trails. We walked to one of the water falls. It was one of the nicest parks we have been to
  • Beautiful park. I recommend coming here if you're ever in the area. Its very quiet and scenic, lots of places to jog or just relax and enjoy nature. There is also a good size swimming pool, playground, concession and tennis courts nearby.
  • Beautiful so colorful in any season a walk-through this park encompasses you with history and the present a peaceful Journey had by all
  • Great place to take your kids to play or tKe your dog for a walk. There isusually someone striking up a conversation along the way. Really nice place to visit. Scenery is awesome
