“We love going hiking in the trails here.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

We take our 3 yr old son and he loves running though the woods and seeing all the wild life. We've been all over the park and the surrounding area. We even played in the creek this summer when it was hot outside. Great place for a nice peaceful afternoon.

“Great for Walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2014

I love this park. It's 600 plus acres in the middle of suburbia is a welcome place on a weekend morning. With the leaves turning, the earthen floor of the woods has an enchanted feel to it. Great for walks with spouse or dog.

“Hidden spot with some nice trails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2014

Took a picnic here recently and enjoyed the trails, pond with a huge fish and small nature center (with amphibians & reptiles). Surprised they had a honey hive on site. Talked to some park guides and they were friendly, noting the deer were hiding because of the annual deer population reduction program.

Pros: Not too crowded, nice nature center with inexpensive gift shop. Restroom in nature center clean.
Cons: Picnic area a little too close to major roadway, port a john as restroom in picnic area that could use some cleaning

“Great place for a picnic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Nature center filled with local history and visual displays. Beautiful pond off Walney road with a pavillion perfect for a cookout or picnic. Hiking trails run through the square mile of property surrounding the park. Also a great place to just chill out and enjoy the natural surroundings.
