This hidden gem is a fenced in respite, filled with local flora worth perusing; as well as pathways and seating areas. It's a great place to spend a little time. Bring your camera (and some insect repellant if you're wearing shorts).

Great place for families. Paved trails for strollers and well maintained bike trails and for hikers who want a little more of a challenge. Playground and picnic areas and clean rest rooms. A small botanical garden completes the tour.

We came out to do the Go Ape tour and found that there are lots of trails and history too. So we picked a 5 mile hike and went went through the woods. Seemed like it would be fun to do on a bike too....More
