Great for little ones! There are a handful of spots that kiddos can dip their toes in the creek.

About half the trail is very well covered with trees and half is prairie-like with views of the city.

Lots of wildflowers this time of year too.

The Nature Center was great for kids and the trail was an easy walk.
