  • Very nice play to take a jog in, bring the pets for a walk or run as well. Be mindful that mosquitoes will be there sucking. Mosquito repellent is highly recommended.
  • Love the trails. A great place to experience nature without having to go far.
  • Its very clean and I love taking my dog on walks here! Also I never see dog poop and I can't say that about alot of the places I've been... Also its worked on by volunteers :)
  • This place is fun and relaxing. :) A must go for all family! :)
  • Strip of Wooded area with mature trees (several labelled), a stream flowing through the center, well marked trails and lots of benches to sit and hear the cardinals sing. Side towards the entrance is mulched. The creek could use some cleaning - some trash from the storm drains seems to have gathered here. Nice place for birding. Open dawn to dusk with plenty of parking.
