This is an excellent place for a picnic, as there are lots of tables available. There is also a covered pavilion and very nice bathrooms - real ones, not portable ones. We like to explore the trails and were delighted to find a new kiosk!...More

It's a nice place to visit if you want to get out for a short walk. It would also be a great place to take your dog for a walk or to visit with small children.

Variety of trails to select from. Wooden stairs to top of two of the mounds are close to parking area. One path required dexterity to navigate temporary boards on the ground through a muddy area which added more fun to the adventure for our granddaughter....More
