Ford Park is an easy walk around with the latest swamp areas, fishing, and a frisbee disc golf course. This area is great for kids. Accessibility: This asphalt trail is estimated to typically be at least 8 feet wide. The slope is moderately steep in some areas and estimated to range from -7% (downhill) to 6% (uphill) grade. There are several ADA-compliant car parking spots with access aisles at the paved lots around Ford Park. This trail is along roadways. For personal safety, wearing bright colors and using lights and flags is always recommended, especially when using mobility equipment.

Walking

Very nice park (and, yes, it is open... for now). This is not a trail, per se. You will be walking on the same asphalt loop that all motorized vehicles drive on when entering the park, so you're basically walking on the street. The park is divided by a residential street. The east side of the park has a 3/4 mile loop; the west side has a 0.4 mile loop. Both are relatively flat and easy to walk. Plenty of parking spots, picnic tables, pavilions and shade trees all along the trail. The west side fronts Cross Lake and even has a fishing area, along with nice views of the marina to the left and I-220 in the distance crossing over the lake.. The only downsides were the boardwalk that is photoed on the banner-head is gone, and the old railroad and fire engines are in a horrible state of decay. But for walking/exercising, the loops are great.

Walking

I'm hoping someone knows how long before Ford Park will be open. I'm new to this state and I'm alone. I want to find somewhere close to my house to walk my dog. I found him on Hearne Ave and I want him to have somewhere to walk, he's still a young boy, lm guessing about 8 months old? The dog park is closed and I just don't want to keep driving to the Wildlife Refuge 20 minutes away. Thanks for your help.
