  • This is such a year-round picturesque walking area. It is clean and well maintained. There are nice facilities for picnics as well as a well kept bathroom building. There is even a board that shows the History of local business that were once part of the community located along Bear River. Great place the family and a quick walk for the dog.
  • We saw lots of different animals footprint on the snow. It's a great place to take a walk through the river bank.
  • Nice park to walk along a scenic riverfront. No amenities, but free and clean.
  • Beautiful area and great for a little hike.
  • Just beautiful I love coming here to relax and unwind
