What a great respite just behind the Gadsden Mall! Calm, serene and beautiful landscape in this walking park just off a major thoughfare. This is one of the great strolls with water, trees and even a bit of wilderness right in town. I highly recommend spending some time walking through this cool, shady place.

This is a great place to visit everyday and do your walking miles. Very well kept, wooded and a lake very close by. Many Canada Geese and now lots of babies. Love this place.

Nice enough trail that has a long boardwalk that crosses the Coosa to an island and a gravel section that connects to the Gadsden Mall. Good parking on both ends. Good place for bird viewing.

Short trail that encircles a pond like area. The trail begins behind the Gadsden mall and starts as a packed gravel trail that leads to a long boardwalk for the crossing over water. At the end of the boardwalk the trail becomes a dirt foot path in a wooded island like area. The walk out and back is about 3... More

It is easy to track how far you have walked/run, etc. You can easy do a 1/2 mile, full miles, two miles and three miles. You can also take your dog with you. Path is fairly level.

It was a pleasure to see the quite still waters, and hear the crickets and the birds. You have 1 hour on your hands and some walking shoes then that's your place...

This trail was close to our campground and I rode there by bike and explored the paths. I loved the boardwalks over the water and saw much of the wildlife mentioned in previous reviews. I am currently injured and can't run, but am looking forward to returning when I can. I was alone and felt very safe. There were several... More

This is a quiet peaceful place to relax and gather your thoughts. You can walk the trails or just sit and look at the water. When you get hungry, the mall is right there. Wonderful!!

We visited for the second time in 3 years, and this time we hit the jackpot! Not only did we see lots of herons, egrets, cormorants, and songbirds, but also a Bald Eagle! Lots of neat boardwalks over the water, as well as benches and even picnic pavilions. Ran out of energy before we ran out of trail.
