  • It is a great place to walk and enjoy. You get to see some really cool historical places and enjoy being away from the city.
  • This is always our go to Park to get a quick nature fix. It is family Inn dog friendly and there are some great sights and sounds to experience on the trails.
  • My dog and I like to walk around here. Roughly a 1.75 mike walk, but has the ability to become a walk of any distance if you make laps of the island. Beautiful scenery and able to step out of the world for a bit. Can get crowded on weekends with great weather.
  • Beautiful, easy flat boardwalk and trail with plenty of shade. Great for an afternoon outing.
  • Nice little nature trail about 1.5 miles. You can even do some fishing there.
