Creekside Trail does bring you around by the creek but you don't have the best access to the water. If you are taking dogs it may take a little agility to get them down to the water to drink and play. I recommend visiting the website and looking at the different maps to the park to see how they all work together. There are so many trails in this park that connect, are skill alternatives to each other, and run along side each other; you should consider the trails as a whole system rather than individual trails to be done one at a time.
