This area is a great park in progress. Due to frequent flooding the city gradually purchased the land over the last 10 years or so. Yesterday was the first time we’ve explored the area since the houses have been removed. The park has lots of picnic pavilions and you can see the work in progress everywhere, including the trails. It’s clear it’s not finished, so right now it’s not quite 5 stars, but I’m thinking it will be once it’s all completed.

Very easy, large trail. A little stinky at times because there are sewer vents at the beginning of the trail... but great for an easy ~3 mile run with nice trees. The trail is wide and clear of debris or stumps. Not the most amazing hiking trail, but certainly better than walking or running the same loop around my neighborhood everyday! Would be great for kids and dogs... there is a dog park at the trail head.
