What used to be an oasis in the area is now becoming abused by visitors. Bike riding is prohibited but people are ignoring the signs and the rules as well as leaving trash along the trails, including a growing number of cigarette butts- disgusting! I'd like to see park rangers/authority out there enforcing the rules to keep this beautiful location from becoming trashy and abused for the rest of us.

Great for families. Love the nature center & various little “exhibits”. It can be crowded on weekends as the trail is easily accessible to a large neighborhood, but the trail is wide and very well maintained so it’s not too bad even when crowded. A great opportunity to see local wildlife too, as many deer, turtle, and various birds are always near the pond or in the meadow area.

This is a sweet little hidden gem, although as busy as it was on a Sunday morning, it may have better suited hours if quiet is what you are looking for.

Heavily used in the spring, summer and fall. Very well maintained. Easy loop walk with longer trails to the Nature Center. Well shaded in the summer. Nice to find such a pretty park so close to a developed area.

Poorly marked. Poorly made map. I love aviation, but when you go hiking and want some peace and quiet, planes overhead every few minutes gets pretty annoying. Not much to see. The history was nice, but not much of it. Need to mow and clean up a little more around the historical sites. Need to replace the history signs. Most are not readable. The pond was nice.

Fun hike and trail. The pond is cute. There are signs around the property to explain how the dairy farm operated pre-civil war.

You can park at the pond and do a long hike or park at Walney house/Visitor center and you'll be able to go either direction on the trail as its pretty much at the midpoint.

Cons: lots of people, you wont be alone
Pros: dogs allowed on leash, signs explaining the various things on the property, turtles at the pond

Proximity to roadways is too close. Mostly flat and wooded path.
