A nice, peaceful paved trail to jog, walk or ride on with a mix of shaded and unshaded areas. It's built around the site of an old landfill but is a very pretty park. There's a clean, grassy hill in the middle of the trail, which makes for a nice change of scenery from what one would usually see around here. I didn't spot any wildlife, but it seems like it would be a good area for some sightings. The park is also right next to a radio-controlled aircraft facility, which means you have a chance to see some pretty cool gadgets flying through the air during your visit.

One of my favorite places for a long walk. Seeing all the birds and deers are added bonus.

It was perfect for One Wheeling. Asphalt with some roots popping up. Lovely curves. This place is a dump brought back to life. Sunny and shady

Nice, but a 4 since it's so damn flat (I understand that is a FL thing).

Great little all-paved trail with little elevation change. 1/2 shaded with trees & palms. Beautifully maintained. Very well-equipped playgrounds for kids.

First to Review

There are two loops, that start and end at the parking area. The smaller loop is about a mile, the larger is about 2 3/4 miles. Trees provide a nice canopy for about half of the trail. I've been to this park several times, in my experience it's pretty common to see deer on the larger loop.
