Very nice city park with sports field, frisbee golf, fishing spots in the river, play grounds and restrooms, etc. It doesn't have that "new park" look, shiny and metal and plastic; it's more a place you could play plenty of sports as well as have bbqs. But as for the trail and trail running:

The trail itself is 99% crushed gravel. It crosses the very unbusy park street a few times. No ups and downs, no hills, no creek crossings: this is a city park trail. Very good for when you need to rest your feet from the rocky/rooty trails. But it can get crowded sometimes. Come on a Sat morning, or a day off school, and there'll be plenty of joggers, parties, strollers and four legged friends.

What I did was run on the trail itself a few times, but then I made up my own loop, basically running right by the river, down the concrete path to the street by the soccer field, then around through the trees behind the sports fields, through the frisbee golf course, and under the overpass. Basically I just wanted to run on the grass and next to the water and such. it's an open park, no one cares if you're running on the grass and such.

I give this a three for trail running in specific. But it is a nice trail for all city, family friendly purposes, and is near the pickett trail which has some actual "outdoor" feel to it.

Nice gravel path. Nice views of the lake. One section has lots of sun. Take a hat. Facilities along the way. Not any actual hiking. Just walking.

There was some construction on the trail and it was closed. We had to walk off-trail some to make our way back.

Wide gravel path, well maintained. Local trail good for joggers, but I prefer more nature-adventure hikes.

Circled around a park. Not crowded unless there is a softball or soccer game.. Open, spacious, not lengthy. Good for a quick workout. Easy run.
