  • For whatever reason, I was under the impression that this was going to be a long trail on a boardwalk. It’s not. There’s plaques along the way that tell about the Senator tree.

  • Great little park to have lunch a picnic or go on a nature walk. Covered picnic areas, and restrooms are available. I also saw that they have a nice little play area for kids.

  • I love this park! It is a trajedy that the main tree burned down but the remaining tree is still very impressive. I take the kids (toddlers) at least once a week. Great for young ones!

  • Beautiful park but the end of the trail really made me hate humanity...
