A great place to exercise whether someone is walking, jogging, running, or biking. There are many trails to explore and the long trails can go for 5 miles or more. It's one place to go get the mindset off the workplace.

There are several sections of the park and my favorite is the 5 mile loop. I use it when training for the Broad Street Run or just for exercise. There are many trails where people walk in the woods.

, the park has several playground areas. All well maintained. Stop at the park office and check the map on the board for locations. They are just about in every picnic area in the park...hope this helps
