This is a well thought out hiking trail, with lots of different paths leading through a water conservation area. Clean and well maintained.

This swamp could be a nice and tranquil spot to commune with nature if nature did not include millions and millions of mosquitos! They will eat you alive until you are drenched from head to foot in heavy duty repellant. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Beautiful nature preserve with 500 species of native plants for the nature lovers and endless possibilities for photographers! Great place to host a wedding ceremony, under the shade sails of the Chesterton Amphitheater.

A very relaxing place to walk and unwind after a busy work day or hectic week. Delightful visuals dance along water and walkways with a broad range of auditory experiences.

Relax and enjoy walking along a variety of trails observing nature in all its varieties - birds, plants, sights and sounds that beg you to walk a little farther. Have walked here in all four seasons and each one has its own delightful treats of things to see and hear. A wonderful walk that is also healthy.

This little walking trail, about a 5k is very scenic, a little hilly and has coffee creek running alongside. Great for individuals, walkers, runners children, and deer seem to find it nice. A very nice afternoon enjoyment for 20 minutes or a few quiet hours.

We love to run the trail and visit for walks. Unfortunately one of the companies is ruining the back half of the trails. Very scenic!

We were staying at the Hilton Garden Inn which is maybe a half mile from this park. Fun to run and see all of the flowers, wild birds, water features and small lake.
