Great spot for a hike with our dog. Tons of lizards, rabbits, and birds. Great trails and landscaped nicely.

Was really nice! Lots of bunny rabbits hoping around which made for fun sight seeing! Several trails and if running it’s moderately hilly but flat most of the time. It was peaceful and a lot of other runners out. A lot of people walking with their dogs. I would go back again!

I took my daughter. We loved it. Over 30 fairy houses along the trail. We also enjoyed the maze, mosaic garden. My daughter enjoyed the slides. The butterfly garden was ok. That’s where my daughter started to get a little tired as it was more uphill and in the sun. Other parts of the 3 mile walk were in the shade butI recommend going before noon or after 4:30 if it’s warm.

Great little walk in a park, this is not a hike, we were one of many who brought our dog with us (dogs must be on a leash). Many friendly people and many fairy houses to look at. We enjoyed all the flowers and had fun in the little hedge maze. Great little getaway then head down the road a little to relax at the beach.

Very easy trail. Love the gorgeous vegetation and hearing the creek along side is very relaxing. Great place to take kids. There’s art Work and fairies to explore. My son and I really enjoyed this hike

So beautiful! I would def rate it as easy. Lots of optional side trails to explore, places to stop, plant maze!, nots of nature + wildflowers,. Kids were loving the fairy houses created all over. Good for dogs!

Nice trail for a walk. Should not be rated moderate as this is a flat and shaded trail. Good for families.
