There is a nice big walk around the goose ponds called the goose walk. It’s a great walk, lots of ducks and geese along the way. Take some bread down and feed the ducks and the turtles, they eat from your hand

Walking the paths of the Gooseponds rewards you with something new every day. Geese are just one type of bird that inhabits the ponds. I have personally taken many beautiful pictures of the birds and I never tire of the walks it's so peaceful.
