Great hike

A great hiking or biking trail. The trail is waterfront all the way. There are benches with a water view along the way.

Where is the history? Saw the flyer on this and looked interesting. Little did we know it was a community park. Flyers are misleading. Unless you are a community member and buying tickets for the fish fry, don't go.

Absolutely love taking our children to the very beautiful Carrollton Nike Park! There are 3 options of playsets, 2 different swing areas, a skate park, baseball&soccer fields, fishing pier, hike/bike trails and a full bathroom area with drinking fountain. Easily the best in the area!!
