  • Love this park, interesting, well groomed, lots of features including remains of old foundry. Well attended and a lovely little lake loop  more »
  • Nice park with plenty of parking. Nicely laid out trails. Could use a couple of picnic tables. Trails wind around the lake.  more »
  • Great place to walk yourself or the dog. Especially this time of year. Easy walking, stroller friendly, lake circuit.  more »
  • This is a great park for running. It's not anything too crazy. No hills or rough terrain. It goes from an asphalt path to dirt. Decent scenery with a little bit of nature and history thrown in. You do have to be careful. We have ran into a few copperhead snakes on the path. All together, it is definitely worth a visit for anyone looking to run, walk or see nature.
  • Very pleasant place with some old ruins from the tragic mining accident that happened in the 1800s. It also has a nice lake, paved trail, an old cemetery, and a small pavilion with modest seating. I think they have musical events there too
  • Pretty park with well kept historic sites and forested trails in a residential area, but it is not possible to access the structures as there are fences around them. Look for the small graveyard hidden near the lake.
  • This place is quiet and peaceful. Walking, listening to my favorite tunes, and enjoying God's beautiful creation: nature! Nothing better!!
  • Coal mine ruins are cool but otherwise a fairly boring park. One long trail end to end, about a 10 minute casual bike ride or 20 minute walk. Fine to kill an hour or less.
