This park beside the Great Bridge Locks is suitable for all abilities. Most of the park is accessable. This is part of the intercoastal waterway so the locks are quite busy. The boat launch area can get busy too. But the part of the loop that cuts through the woods along the water is beautiful and a lot less busy.

This is nice 1/2 mile or so trail a long the water way at the locks. After your walk there is a pick nick area to eat something or just relax.

Not much here. Nice to have lots of water surrounding the park but the trail didn't even seem like a mile.

Did not like it at all. Is a nice part to bring the kids but there is no running trail.

I gave it four stars even though part of the way was busy. The rest of the way was empty and beautiful. Also it is a short loop, but it was my fourth park for the day so short was okay. The day was beautiful too.
