If you are looking for a trail that is a little unique and a fun place to take your dogs for a walk, Look no further. The park has interesting things to see and is around a scenic pond. It is easy to find as it is right off the main road, and the trails are pretty well populated.

This is a nice small local park. There is a parking area on either side of the road that divides the park. On the East side there is a forested area with a trail leading end to end with ruins from the old coal mine. The west side of the park has a walkway around the pond.

Historical and green, pleasant and serene! Ideal for a walk or a jog. Especially good to bring kids along as there are geese and ducks in the lake for them to feed, interact with.

This park is worth the visit. It is one of the newer Midlothian, Chesterfield local parks. Nice walk around the lake plus they have a trail to the old coal mines of Midlothian. It's a local, walk your dog kind of park so if you are in the area, it's worth the visit. Lots or ducks and geese as usually... More

It is well maintained and family friendly. I am not a local, but the area seemed safe. The side with the lake has a walking trail around it and many bridges to take pictures of. The other side has remnants of mines has multiple trails and bike paths. Do be careful with your kids though. Some of the trails become... More

Not at all what I expected. It is just a pond with walking trails. Pretty but I really thought I would be able to walk through the mine. There are remnants to see from a distance but that's about it.

The County has done a great job with this simple park. Interesting history of the mining in Midlothian (first coal mining in the US!) and great place to walk.

This nice little park has two sides. One side has walking paths around the lake with a small stage and the mining "headstock". Every now and then there will be free festivals and other activities going on which are very family friendly. The wooded side of the park has a variety of walking/running/biking trails that lead around what used to... More
