  • We love walking here. We like the long trail, which gives me about 6500 steps and 16 flights of stairs worth of height differential on my Fitbit. Very peaceful, well-kept walkways, plus water features...  more »
  • This is a new park for this area and the plants are maturing nicely. It is a free walking park with well paved paths , many gardens and markings of what the plants are.  more »
  • Beautiful scenery and the trails were easy to navigate. Just as a heads up they have specific times for jogging/running so look up times before you go there for those activities.  more »

  • i went several times last simmer from June to October and every time was a let down. the pavilion was nasty with trash the bathrooms were nasty a well. i know the smell from the standing water is nothing that can be helped but if it's that bad, why it's it a conservation area? what are we saving? the mosquito population? saw plenty of snakes so watch out! my oldest had an issue with wasp while we were there.we won't be back
  • Wonderful place for quick excursions. Location and ease of access are positives. The wildlife has developed some tolerance to human presence allowing closer observation than might otherwise be possible. The trails are not challenging to traverse, however some areas can be slick or muddy if it is precipitating. The visitor center offers displays and information on conservation, hunting, fishing, and is worth a look.
  • I love this place just to walk the trails and enjoy nature. Highly recommended!!
  • Great place for a walk. Very peaceful. Great nature center to learn about the local wildlife.
  • Enjoy the nature as it is. Make sure that you visit it during the spring or nice summer days. And, don’t forget to come prepared. Have plenty of water, healthy snacks, and comfortable close toed shoes. Take your camera or make sure that your smart phone is charged, so you can take some pictures. Be ready to see some dears. Even if you prefer visiting this place alone, having someone with you is always a better option.
