Spent a lot of time around Osborndale in high school, as it is directly across the street. Decent trails for low-key hiking, several pavilions, a few fields, lookout points, etc. The gate to the parking lot (and the park itself) close at sunset every day.

Thank Katie G

Poorly maintained, terrible maintenance, sketchy clientele. Just what you'd expect for a state that is in decline and heading for bankruptcy. Don't waste your time.

We wanted to try out a new spot to hike and figured we'd give it a shot. The trails (if you could call them that) are SO overgrown you can't walk without getting tangled in them. The pavilions were nice and the pond is cute...More

Is pretty nice if you just want a place to go walking around a lake or taking pictures...there are 2 picnic areas, the one on top of the hill is usually a good choice for views.

A lot of great trails here. Some of the markings are confusing and not well marked in areas. Get a map before you head out. Some steep parts. Good picnic areas as well. Various parking areas.
