“A little NYC in the 'ville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

The park is absolutely gorgeous and having an entire lane around it dedicated to pedestrians is beyond amazing. There is something gorgeous around every turn and it's worth the 1 hour walk or peeking around the trails or watching the dogs running or finding a quiet spot to read or picnic.

“Great place to jog or ride bikes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

The hills make for a challenging jog or bike ride. I used to live nearby and run here all the time. You'll often find people playing soccer, frisbee, or letting their dogs run wild.
