We drive there every month. We walk around. Listen to the birds. Look out at the water. Rock in the wooden chairs or sit in the shade on the benches. We love to bring our grandchildren and make pictures of them and us.

peaceful walk yet watch out for the rusted trashed items that's been there for ages. We only walked the part closer to the entrance and back around but it goes far along the road and back to more trails for bike riders as well

Beautiful place to go for a walk alone or with the family. The grounds are gorgeous and meticulously cared for. We enjoy visiting the grounds for a stroll by the water or a walk through the trails. I have seen many fishermen enjoying the water,...More
