FYI: This is a park and it's for walking, not hiking, but it's beautiful.

Views: A lake, some ducks, swans, geese, dogs and kids.

Note: In Feb/March the Cherry Blossom trees are in bloom.

Parking: Usually isn't an issue but it's busier in the summer, on weekends and in the afternoon.

Warning: If you decide to park on the side of the road in the park, make sure that you PARALLEL park, otherwise, you may come back to a lovely parking ticket.

Easy access, lots of parking. Not too much shade but there's some. Good for when you need a quick, no-fuss workout.

Not really a hike, but great for a walk and/or jog!

Good trail, Well traveled. This course is more of a walk than a hike, the trail is paved and on weekend you can reward yourself with a hot dog with bacon. There is bike rentals, kayaks, fishing, and snacks for purchase.
