Lovely small park. Very quiet and well maintained. Great for spring wild flowers and birds. Some trails are stones or paved, others not. Great for a walk or run.

There's miles of walking and woods. Be careful on rainy days. Wear bug spray and enjoy nature! It's worth a visit.

Great scenery at this park. You can make a 5 mile loop around the lake. Very tranquil and relaxing. A good spot to just get away.
