This was a beautiful park that has both pavement walking and well marked trails. You can spend some time in this park if you come with the family. make sure to wear proper shoes in the trails as there are branches and rocks that stick out. I do recommend to start the trails from 1 or 6 and work up to point 15 as you incline and don't have to worry about descending with a dog if you start from point 15, especially when there are branches and or have kids or dogs.

This is a great hike with kids. So much to see. Also a lot of room for dogs to run around in the special "area".

This is a flat, easy, and well-marked trail. It is nearly impossible to get lost in there with trail maps at many trail intersections.

Such a fun place! Multiple easy, well maintained paths to explore, large playground for the kids, dog park, fishing and so many areas for picnics. Definitely a great place for a long stroll through nature.

Great for families. Walked around with my two year old and he did most of the trail, only carried him during a few sections. There is also a playground for post hike fun.

Trails were easily located from the parking lot. All trails were moderately easy in difficulty. Nice area with nicely kept wooded paths.

Great walk, some ups and downs to make it interesting along the outer route. Everything is well packed, well labeled, and there are some neat historic sites. Fun walk for the basset hounds-lots of new smells!

The GPS directions take me to a residential neighborhood with no trail head in sight. FAIL.

it's a nice and easy hike for toddlers. Not usually busy, and a few places to exit out early if they get tired. Not just for kids though. it's a nice outdoor walk for anyone, but no mountainous views.

Great for a family day. This is especially cool if you remember Bensons Animal Park from your youth. Be sure to check out the 911 memorial before you leave.

Our regular summer hike spot! Nature is very good. Park has slide/swing area for kids.

lots of tall grass at one point. . not recomended on a really hot muggy day. the animal cages are cool, but creepy.
