  • Great little park to get away from it all. Last I checked they are in the process of rebuilding the bridge in front of the entrance to the trails. Dog friendly but must be leashed.
  • Love the park, beautiful variety of trees and plants. Unfortunately there is quite a bit of litter that gets caught up in the stream. Also some of the bridges and docks are in disrepair, but with new ones slowly being built. One of my favorite stops for me and my son.
  • Peaceful place, really mmm nothing here. More a park with labels on the trees
  • Love going here. Great for a walk or date. It's just nice to get away for a little bit . Trails are nice not to long not to short great scenery trail Maps make it impossible to get lost
  • Love this place... currently in disrepair but still pleasant. Occasionally snakes have been a nuisance, but I've never had one come after me or my family.
