  • Always my favorite local park to go to when I want to ride my trike! There's great events that are held here, and Taylor's fireworks! I love fishing in the lake, and walking around enjoying the scenery! There's also a petting zoo, and botanical gardens! A great place to relax, look for rocks, exercise, walk the dog, take the family for a picnic, and of course there's always the little league world series! So much to do and see right in our own back yard here in Taylor!
  • There is a really nice path that surrounds the whole man-made Pond where there are lots of Fish and Wildlife such as ducks and geese. Also a great place if you are into the rock painting and hiding Downriver rocks and other rock collectors posted it on Facebook hide they're painted rocks here for people to find it's like an Easter egg hunt and it's always a good time there is a lot of space if you don't want to be around other people

  • Great local park with tons of green space! Awesome trails through the woods. It's like a country retreat away from the city. Paved walking track for both walkers and bikers. Plenty of parking. I love to bring my dog into the woods, he loves it. To the time to visit a wonderful park in Taylor.
