We had no clue that this was around. Unfortunately we weren't able to access the main entry way was closed off to the public for some get together that was happening.

Compared to the entire city of Topeka, this is a nice area and location. You could go hiking on this trial, biking, walking, and golf course near by. Safe and all dogs on leash so no worries about a little guy picking on the big guy :D
