We are new to the area and stumbled along this park. It has a nice paved walking trail along the river however it very short. It appears they are currently working on improving or expanding this park which I look forward to the completion. There were other families walking, riding bikes and rollerblading which was nice to see.

The trail is well-maintained, and short enough (3/4 mile) for young children to walk on their own. Just be sure to bring water. It's a shared (bike/walk) trail, but I didn't see any evidence of bikes when I was there.

I decided to take a jog down the Heritage Trail and found it quite cool and peaceful. I really like that that is was all paved and seemed very safe. I have now run along both sides of the River. I cant wait until they finish the DT side of the river where the Otis Redding statue is. The only... More

We had the perfect day and we planned on just walking over to one of the mounds. And then there was another one not that far away, and the bridge looked interesting, and ... and... before we actually realized it we were well along the path and not overly tired so we decided how far we wanted to go and...
