I have lived in this area my entire life. The Park offers beautiful vistas all times of year as well as various levels of hiking trails for any level of exercise. There are programs offered during the year to get closer to nature. It is a wonderful free place to spend a day.

It was a hot day and we didn't walk the trails, but we drove the length from Fellows Riverside Gardens to Lanterman's Mill -- so pretty!

There are so many thing to do and the park seems to be safe and well maintained. The rose garden was fantastic, the trails are interesting. We paddled on the lake, visited the nature center, and finally... More
