Great place with many fun activities. We usually do the walking trails both on & off road! But the picnic area is a great place for bdays, picnics or get togethers. They have a canoe launch as well.

There are wooden walkways, exercise bars, picnic tables, some covered, play equipment, bathrooms and easy parking. A beautiful place under trees with squirrels to enjoy.

Really nice place. Cost 2 dollars for a car load of people. You can rent canoes at another park before you get to the boat ramp. The restrooms are very nice. Nice place to relax and get a workout. The currant wasn't very strong, but when you have to paddle back to car. It was a little harder.

Our family has a get-together at this park each year. Plenty of picnic shelters and parking available. There's a playground for the kids and the nature trails are very nice.

We had a great visit to Aldermans Ford Park. There is a choice of walks - a two mile path or a 2/3 mile boardwalk. Canoe boats are available for renting, and there is a large picnic area, complete with picnic tables. We were taken round by a ranger, who was very informative. Will definitely be back.

This park is a wonderful place to go with family, walk the dog, go for a run or a bike ride! We enjoyed a beautiful walk with our dogs there and enjoyed the stunning nature!

This park has the best river to canoe down because of how much woods their are and there are great hiking trails for all ages.

Full disclosure: I didn't visit this park in 2013 -- Trip Advisor required that I select a month/year I visited the park to be able to submit this review, dang it. I spent too long writing this review to have to back out because their month/year option doesn't go back to 2007. On with the review: Besides not being able... More

We popped in to Aldermans in order to check out the Alafia river access at the park's canoe launch area. This section of the park was completely deserted and looked as if it had been neglected, maintenance wise, for a little while. The grassy areas had not seen a mower in a while and there was trash and "stuff" just... More
