  • I went here alone on a trip and had to bring my daughter to see it. I would love to see this done in our home area someday. Amazing.  more »
  • Nice respite from the city. Great tribute to veterans. I love that portion. Lots of trails and green space. Plenty of people. Covered pavilion.  more »
  • This new nature park is beautiful, it is connected to the lake and has great walking paths in the open as well as in the woods and next to creeks.  more »

  • Great place for a peaceful walk or run. Excellent location to park and begin a run around Freeman lake, as a short underground tunnel connects safely under Ring Road to Freeman lake Park. The Veterans tribute is nicely done, with status representing each branch as well as civil servants. The nature part of the nature Park is a bit lacking, honestly, being mostly mowed lawn with a small creek being the only naturally diverse feature. A very nicely conducted pavilion with seasonal bathrooms and picnic tables make it a convenient place to enjoy a lunch break.
  • Come on Elizabethtown. You could do so much more with this. It's very quiet which is great. Everything is well kept but this could be one of the best parks in town if there were more facilities.
  • It's quiet and peaceful here. I like to go here to have my lunch break. Really convenient!
  • They have nice trails to walk or run on with benches and restrooms. There is Freeman Lake with a trail around it or you can go fishing. Also there is a Veterans tribute of the U.S. Armed Forces with statues and plans for building a replica of the Vietnam Memorial wall on the grounds.
  • Beautiful, well kept park with some fun beginner singletrack bike paths
