  • Great for cyclists and runners, lovely shady paths and the sound of the creek is very relaxing. A couple of the water fountains were running cloudy but others perfectly alright (and all free so really can't grumble too much!). I rode in from Heatherwood on a sunny morning and as a tourist from a drive-on-the-left country it felt like a very safe, calm route into the city centre – would def recommend!
  • Have not walked it entirely, but in the sections I've walked, not even one dug out potty.. When did exiting waste from a body not qualify as necessary and something that is an issue addressed by the county, city, and park offices through infrastructure changes and policy inclusion BECAUSE, YES, YOU HAVE HOMELESS PEOPLE HERE. Operative word is "people" and people poop. You best learn acceptance of this.
  • Long and meandering path along a river but be careful for the bicycles zipping by. No food or water on the path itself.
  • Walking this path was really nice and serene.
  • Very nice to feel like I'm surrounded by nature.
