  • This is a great place to take your family or dog on a nice sunny day. They have a variety of paths and short hiking trails. The scenery is very beautiful and well maintained. Also make sure you check with the visitors center as they often times have classes or events that are open to the public. So if you enjoy playing in or learning about nature this is a park I would highly recommend
  • Love it. The pond is great. You can actually see the turtles and fishes. They do have restrooms on site. There is a hiking trail which is pretty awesome. Good for taking pictures in spring and summer. They also have an edible garden which was really nice to explore. Your lil ones can smell all the different herbs and flowers. Very well maintained. Great for picnics or just a stroll.
  • One of my favorite Metro Parks in the area to go visit. Many trails (paved and unpaved) around the park to walk around on. The tree house is one of the characteristic features that sets this aside from other parks. A great spot to take portraits or photos of nature, and the grounds here are very well kept.
  • There's plenty of trails that are clearly marked. It seems there's always something new to look at. It has an area near the front of the parks that's great for picnics.
  • This is such a great park. They are constantly working to improve the paths. The scenery is absolutely amazing and would suggest it to anyone visiting or just wants to enjoy a nice day.
