This is a really nice little park. It's basically a few hundred feet long stretch of a creek and the creek is running in a little canyon, so you have to take the trail and walk down.

This beautiful park has entrances on Cedar Street and at the end of Laurel Street, and was recently restored with new trails, better walking paths, removal of invasive species, new benches and trash cans, and trails to overlook Pudding Creek with loads of wildlife thriving. Very peaceful and beautiful, big trees and its 75 years old!

We found this little park near where we were staying in Fort Bragg and fell in love with it. It's very small, but truly lovely. It has a little stream, beautiful redwoods, some amazing staircases built into the hill, and picnic tables too. It's definitely worth a look-see. Plan on taking a short hike, and bring your lunch!
