Took my female dachshund there to exercise and she was run over by bad mannered large dogs so I picked her up to walk to another area only to have someone's large dog jump up on me to get at her. I got muddy, my dog was traumatized and the owner of the offender couldn't care less. I am never... More

We enjoy walking at Minto-Brown Island because there is a variety of trials. Whether walking under trees, next to a pasture, or along the river, it changes with the seasons. The river may be roaring after a winter storm, or placid in the summer. The trees may be bare, leafed out and green, or crimson. Some trails have bark on... More

A park, or roads to bike, and paths to walk. City is building a bridge to cross from Riverfront park. A nice addition.

You can bike or walk on interlacing paved trails, and pick a route that's flat or a little hilly or along the river. The dog park is awesome. You can bring kids to a play structure. The blackberry picking is great in August. They're going to link the park to downtown!!!

I take my two large dogs to the park, and then we walk along the paths. Depending on the time of day, it's a nice treat for all of us - the dogs get to run & play, and I get some exercise while listening to the birds and enjoying the quiet.

We had a great time riding our bikes on the many trails. The trails were very lightly used on a weekday. Walkers, runners, cyclists, and dog walkers were all very polite.

If you have dogs and like to walk them off-leash, this is the place to go. There is a huge area with a walking path, as well as a grassy area to throw frisbees. Dogs are everywhere. Make sure that your dog know the command "Come" before you go.

I live less than a mile from this wonderful gem that many people miss. The park is mostly kept wild, with open fields and nice shady wooded areas. The park has great paved walking/biking trails, bark running trails, an awesome large dog park area, and a play area and picnic area very close to the water. There are only portable... More
