“Beautiful Cross Country Ski Trails!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This park is just breath-taking in the winter! A group of us went cross country skiing and had a fabulous time. The trails are groomed, one-way, and well kept. The trail maps are easily accessible and easy to navigate. There are a variety of skill leveled trails to choose from and you can truly make a day out of it. What a serene, peaceful park!!

“Great walking trails!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The colors are perfect at this time of year, but you can really go anytime besides the winter and love everything about this park. The kids love the playground, the dogs love the space, and the family loves the walk and rushing water.

“Great XC Ski Trails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

If you're a fan of cross-country skiing like we are, this park has some great trails. And, a few of them are lit up at night so for an added thrill and scenic beauty, try skiing here in the evenings. They do a great job grooming the trails, too.

“Great Place to Visit Year Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Can enjoy park with kids or take hikes along scenic river or can take a variety of loops that make you feel far away from town and city life. River appears so different depending on time of year. Great X country ski trails in winter.

“Absolutely beautiful...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I loved this park. It was my first time hiking so I would say this is a basic path, not real long and not hard to traverse. We took our dog (leashed) while many other dogs were off leash. The views are amazing with beautiful trees, waterfalls, bridges, a gazebo deep into the park.

I can't say enough about Lester Park - simply amazing! I would probably go all the time if I lived in the area.
