Wonderful trails, some areas were wet due to rain but still very beautiful and calming!

Great after work hike or trail run. Some trails are a little muddy. Not too many dogs or people which is great for me with a shy dog.

This isn't a bad park to hike in if you live in the area and want an easy walk with the kids or the the dogs. Probably not worth driving far to visit. Some paths are gravel; others are grass and dirt. Some parts were pretty muddy when I went.

Very nice park! Well kept and trails are marked well. I only took off one star because it is pretty busy.

This is a nice little park. Very easy gravel trails with interpretive signs about the animals, trees, and pond along the trails. You won't get complete quiet due to the park being in the flight path of the airport, but it is a nice place to have a pinic or take small children on an easy hike. I didn't try fishing here.

Pretty Park, many trails. Seems a popular place to hike with your dog. Trails are easy. A little over a couple miles to hike. Large parking lot accommodating many vehicles.

There are multiple types of trails and are extremely easy to follow. There’s a pond to fish in if that’s your gig. I’ve never seen so many animals as I have at this place. I saw a water snake, turtle, frog, rabbit, blue heron, these bright metallic green bugs, and tons of spiders.
The trails themselves aren’t mind blowing but I loved how many animals I was able to see in just one trip.

Some of the trails are gravel and some are dirt so those can get muddy, but it's a pretty park with good trails that loop for day hiking. There are benches spread out along with picnic tables. Dogs are allowed and there are even some of those pet waste disposal bag dispensers. Unfortunately not all owners pick up after their dogs so you do have to watch out for it on the trails.

This trail provides a nice little day hike. It is a good mix of gravel, grass, and wooded/dirt trails. There are benches and some picnic tables along the trails. The different trails are clearly marked and provide a nice mix of trail types.

It's not a long walk in the woods, but the trails are well marked, well groomed and roam through quiet countryside. The park is growing in popularity and traffic on the trail is slowly increasing, however it's a safe and enjoyable place to take a walk in the woods.
