  • Wooded trails and two ponds. Fishing allowed. Runners and hikers share the trails. Love to walk my dogs here and they love trails even though they have to be leashed. Doggie bags provided. No bicycles...  more »
  • This is a very nice park. People will either walk their dogs, hike or relax. During spring they have a nice little field where you can take your pictures with Bluebonnets. There are a lot of photograp...  more »
  • Good park with nice walking trails. They even have restrooms in the back part of the park. If your family plays Pokémon Go, there are plenty of pokestops there. There isn't a ton of parking so it may ...  more »

  • I loved the different features of this park, such as the boardwalk and the rocky ford. The pond is pretty and you can fish out of it, and the trails were fun to walk. My problem with this park is the infestation of copperheads! While we were there, for the last 30 minutes before it got dark, we saw 6 or more copperheads right on the trail. If we weren't watching so vigilantly, we probably would have stepped on one. In fact, we nearly did step on a couple of them because they just look like sticks in the middle of the trail. I really think for the safety of the public that they should do something about the snakes or at least post more signs. We only saw one informational sign that even mentioned copperheads. We wouldn't have known to look for them if we hadn't casually been walking past some staff and they mentioned it to us that it was the time of night that the copperheads come out to eat the cicadas. I've never seen so many venomous snakes in one spot before, especially in Mansfield!
  • Okay so I always come here to eno (hammock) and I absolutely love this place. I've been to other nature parks in the area and none of them quite live up to how awesome this one is. Great trails, a river goes through the park, lots of shade and tall trees. Also beautiful place for senior pictures!!!
  • Lots of nice walking or running trails! Lakes and wild life. I believe you can fish too.
  • Beautiful park and trails. Has had development these past few months as of 2/23/2017 so it it pretty dirty on the main dirt trail. It has geocaches, 2 large ponds, a creek, plenty of foliage, and plenty of things to see and do. Nature's in the name and that's what you'll get.
  • Hands down my favorite park. Long trails, respectful visitors. Fishing, dog walking, wildlife spotting. It's all here.
