The best part about this place is the goats! They aren’t there to pet or feed but if you’re lucky the heard will trot past you and sniff you.

Great for either walking or running.
Not only does it have a fitness course through out the trail, you can easily get variety and switch up which way you walk/run.

At the top of the hill is an awesome spot where on a clear day you can see Manhattan!

After running this a couple more times I changed my review to 4 stars. What I like is your run can be dramatically different each time depending on which way you go. You can stay on the flats or run uphill for variety.

Its a nice place for trail running and has a pleasant view on top of the hill. The only thing that can be bothersome is noise of the traffic but that's fairly expected due to its location.

I love this park! It’s absolutely beautiful on the top of the hill. One side is tranquility and the other hustle and bustle. The pier on the way up has spectacular views! My favorite spot! Also gazebo overlooking that pier is probably the quietest part of the park. Easy walk.

My absolute favorite place to go running or walking. It’s always so beautiful and peaceful to me.. So many different trails and the outdoor exercising options are endless.
