Also found are extensive plantings of dwarf evergreens, rhododendron, azaleas, hollies and oaks, wildflowers and daffodils.

beautiful trails with lots to see. water and tons of species of trees, plants and flowers

grounds are nice but found ticks on clothes when got home. stay on the paved trails

Me and my 2 year old walked this today. Beautiful, nice group of people walking. They even have chickens my daughter loved that.

Amazing views, widest lake ever, well maintained walking trails, scenic views, big trees.

I had fun at this place. The lake was nice, the trail themselves are easy to walk, it was just beautiful, and the really big home was nice to look at too. All in all I would suggest people to come by this place when they have time. It’s a good place to spend a few hours on the weekend

Lots of plants and lots of little winding trails, including along the river. There were even a few colorful flowers still out on October 30 when I went. Probably June is a little better for the flowers though. Still nice.

the best place I have seen. hidden Oak cafe is great to.

I love the atmosphere

A really nice place for all. Beautiful

The place is gorgeous. An easy hike, lots of paved pathways or gravel good enough for a stroller. Awesome views and nice architecture.

This is a great spot. A lot of variety, and so many side trails you can explore. We went there with 2.5 hours to spend, and I felt I needed a whole day to see everything! beautiful views of the water and if you go off the path in the the wooded trails, you can hear and see a decent amount of wildlife. We wound up walking over 3 miles total and didn't even do half of it. Beautiful trees and nature, a lot to see and just overall a really clean and great experience. We brought our 3.5 year old and she loved every minute of it too.

Great trails with lots of flowers and plants to enjoy, and plenty of wildlife. Park also includes an old mansion with a large open rear yard bordering the bay. Just double check the hours before you go, they are private owned so they close early. Also I believe it is paid parking.
