  • This is a beautiful park, and right inside a neigborhood!! The trails are well maintained and a variety of hiking levels (though nothing too difficult). The views of the river are beautiful. The forest is shaded but not too dense. There are a variety of historical markers for self-guided history, but also weekend guided tours. Only downside: portapottys instead of plumbing, and no water fountains. Over all not a big problem, but important to keep in mind if bringing small children with you, or expecting to spend the day.
  • Great hiking trails and a must see stop for the civil war buff. Keep an eye for the ghost of the retreating union solider.
  • Wonderful place for a walk with the family. The woods are nice, and there is plenty of small wildlife. The trails are well maintained, and there are occasionally historical tours.
  • Nice and simple trails. Well kept. Great history.
  • The cannons have been removed; but it's still a nice park to walk and relax. *********************************************** (2015) A beautiful well-maintained park.
