“Always something new ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Been coming here for almost two decades. The trails are well maintained and so are the facilities. Excellent educational houses. My nephews love this place. The water level is decreasing, but there is no shortage of wild life. Listening to the sound of frogs, watching geese, fishing, walking within feet of deer, owls, turtles and other critters is amazing. Go during each season and there is always something new; Like peacocks or a bridge. Trails range from about .25 to 5 miles and are mostly flat with small hills. Easy for kids. Good 4th of July celebrations here draw crowds; otherwise modest groups. Never had trouble finding parking. Next door is the recreation center. Across the street is Sportrock and car racing, so no shortage of fun here.

“We love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

The rec center is clean well maintained and the staff is always so friendly and helpful. Best time to go for seniors is during the mid day time frame. I've taken my grandkids fishing in the ponds out back and we had such fun!

“A fun afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

We have taken our kids here several times. The climbing wall is great! The pool is also good. It has a mini lazy river running through and a big tube slide. It is especially good for little kids because there is a designated area for them.

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

This is a lovely peaceful place amidst hectic suburbia, and at this point it is still very natural. Lanesville has a wonderful history; built in 1779

“Lovely historical park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

300-year-old house with outbuildings, good explanation of the local history. Native Americans, George Washington, enslaved African Americans, and civil war soldiers all walked the old trail that goes through the park. Quiet, beautiful location. Small information building provides some background.
