Despite the heat, this was a beautiful loop to stroll. The homes surround the park are lovely to look at and the park itself is beautifully kept. A real jewel of the community. Worth the trip for a walk or bike.

Excellent place for a dog walk, run, family picnic, yoga, you name it. If you're in the area and don't visit, you're missing out on this beautiful historic park.

No fee to get in, and I am with you on the age and all, but we ride/walk and I suggest the fall to do the walk/ride. It is hilly but I suggest to drive it and pick your area, some hills are worse than others.
