Great people watching location and interesting history behind the park. Decades ago it used to be a cemetery and when they were repurposing the land for park use they weren’t able to find about 1,000 unmarked graves. As you walk on the park soil you are probably stepping over someone’s remains so tread lightly!

Nice path to walk with our 3 y/o, paved for the majority and at just under 2 miles it was a perfect distance. A kids playground at the end was a nice surprise also. The GPS route takes you on the dirt trail (a little muddy in February) but there’s an adjacent paved walkway which follows a similar path.

A great spot in the city for a walk and some nice views

Great place for a relaxing bike ride

favorite part of my run in the neighborhood. It’s about a mile. Lots of hills near by to add to your run too :)

Nice day to take a walk with the kids.

Easy quiet walk this morning! My dog loved walking along the creek. Paved paths and bridges so easy access from the road. Wished people cleaned up after their pets and themselves more but other than that I highly recommend for a morning walk

Trail was open and a pleasant walk. Surrounded by the expanding city but lots of prairie dogs, rabbits, geese, ducks, kingfishers, and many other kinds of birds. Good stroll for little kids.

The dog park is amazing!!!

Cheeseman is a nice area. Lots of people out walking, playing games and walking/playing with their dogs. The large grass field is awesome, and has much less goose poop than City Park.

Beautiful views. Fairly flat trail. Great for a jog.

It’s a nice trail to take your dog on a walk around a lake thats paved.

Great city park, has a awesome view of the city as well as the mountain. Very well traveled, and a great place to bike, run, or workout.

Nice and easy run, pretty views of the mountains.

This loop is entirely paved and is very well traveled. There are bathrooms on either side of the lake which is nice to have. The lake so beautiful and there are nice views of the city. I prefer a softer surface to run on, otherwise this is a great place to run.

Best park in town!
