  • Checked this park out on a Sunday. It was not really a good day for hiking with the snow melting, but I still enjoyed the walk. The park is beautiful and well maintained, wood walkways seems really fun but with all the snow, I couldn't try it. The main loop trail is great for hiking or running. It's 3.2 miles if I remember it right. There were a lot of families and friends hanging out there. Also a great place for photography. I would definitely go there again when spring comes.
  • We love seeing nature in the mist of a bust city. This place allows us to see migrating birds, deer, chipmunks, squirrels, and much more. We love walking here often.
  • Love this place. Come here before work to relax to gather my thoughts and see beautiful things. Nature never disappoints me. Even on a rainy day!!!!
  • Great little loop with fun ecosystems to play in. has a boardwalk for part of the walk as well as a nice information center!
  • A large space to walk and run. There are a good number of lookout spots. A great outdoor space for Harrisburg.
