The walking paths are nice for walking or running. Great for walking the dog and kids for exercise or to just be together. The fountain is gorgeous and the grounds are beautifully kept.

Enjoy nature with a fun walk or run through a splendid wooded trail. Watch out for deer along the way; they're everywhere! Avoid during damp weather or your shoes will get muddy!

The Watershed itself is beautiful with a short trail and lovely benches and water features. We happened by there when they were having their weekly organic farm market. It was a beautiful setting and a nice relaxing place to get away.
