It's not much but there is a trail for further exploration. You can tube, kayak and swim in the river. Not very deep at all. Cute houses in the adjoining area and plenty of street parking. Great place for a picnic.

native peoples used natural depressions in rocks as mortars to grind seeds into flour, over time these wore deeper and deeper, creating significant circular "holes" in solid rock, this is a good example as part of a pleasant nature walk along the river
