Not much more than hiking trails and beautiful plants. It's great for a day out in nature, a picnic, and get the kids away from a screen. Enjoy our area's beautiful weather and some of the best we have to offer.

The trails are well marked, it's clean, and the dog owners seem to be mostly responsible. It's also free! We enjoyed seeing all the sites and relaxing on the nice benches they have around the park. We will definitely be going back.

We love to come here and walk, every time we notice something different. They are constantly upgrading the trails, clearing new trails, and making it even more beautiful. You can see lots of birds and even gopher tortoise. You could spend hours hiking the trails...More

My dogs love climbing in and swimming in the streams. Lots of great and very well kept trails. They have lots of special events too such as Owl watches and other evening fun things to do.
