We arrived at the park and the gates were open with a sign that said "free admission". It's Monday so that may be why it's free. We ended up doing the longest trail in the park... read more

Boat rentals, dog park, disc golf, or picnic. This is a quiet little tuck away amongst a colonial getaway.

we wanted to try someplace new for a walk. Great paved path but there is so much more to do there. Definitely worth checking out if you're into nature. Check out their website.

Waller mill park has lots of very affordable choices for boating on the reservoir. The reservoir and dam are very scenic with lots of hidden coves. The kids loved the turtles sunning on logs in the lake. We then went for a nature walk to the look out point and came across a large snake (5 feet!) (not at the... More
