On the edge of Wilmington, this is a great park with open spaces, picnic pavilions, a great playground, and facilities. We had a group activity and there was plenty of space in the open fields.

once again tough to find the parking for the trail but once you get on it a great place to take a walk. I walk during my lunch hour and find it refreshing.
