This 12 acre park is perfect for fishing, walking, bird-watching and even ice-skating in the winter time. The pond is stocked with trout every year and offers a wheelchair accessible fishing platform over the lake. There is a wonderful flower garden and even a play area for small children. Check out the links in this guide for more information on the park as well as a scavenger hunt for young children.

Beautiful park for picnics and fishing. Theres a crushed stone path around the pond. I think its 1/3 of a mile around it. There's s also a man made bridge path through the marshy cat tails with lots of places to stop and look for turtles. Lots of birds and butterflies too. There's also a small playground for the kids. Great place to bring lunch, let the kids play and then take a walk together.

A very nicely maintained park. Good for the kids with a short and simple trail around the pond.The kids love the ducks, the small playground and garden as well.

A very simple park. Good for the kids with a short, simple trail around the pond. Then another wetlands boardwalk with some interesting things to see. The kids like the ducks, the small playground and garden as well.

It's a very pretty little park. Not a lot of space, just a loop around the pond and a very small wetlands walk. It's all very attractive and it's a good spot for people to be able to fish, relax and there's a playground.
Typically pretty busy though, I personally don't go out with my headphones in, walking my dog, just to be stopped 10 times because everyone wants to have a full conversation and try to pet my dog. It could be a little more peaceful in that regard, but that's people, not the trail.

it's very pretty but not much of a trail. it's a loop around the pond. nice to go fishing there and walk around but not alot going on. my favorite part was the wetlands walk-on the wooden floating docks
