  • You'd never think you're so close to the city. The nature trails here are sublime. Paved walkways and dirt trails available for all walking and bike enthusiasts. I try to come at least once a week just to clear my mind and take in all the beautiful sights. So grateful to have this place so close to home.
  • Best public park ever. It has lots of parking lots a huge tent with more than enough tables, a decent playground for kiddos and an incredible forest with lots of trails. It is so worthy to take the opportunity and spend time here with the family.
  • Beautiful and well maintained. Perfect for a stroll or picnic with the family. Great dog park for both big and small...but its all dirt and mulch so be prepared for the pooch to get dirty.
  • Refreshing place to visit nearby greenville, a day full of activity, there was a carnival type for some group if people. We enjoyed watching it
  • Great for walking or running. Picnic area and clean restrooms. There is also a dog parks!
