Especially when you have 2 dogs in tow and it's a brisk early start albeit any season. So tranquil and full of the delights of nature.

We visited for enchanted parks which was magical on a cold, dark, winters night. The park itself it large and well laid out. Great for spending the afternoon with kids.
