My family & I were Geocaching on a Sunday afternoon & happened upon this place. Great nature trails and a fun Geocache. It is incredibly difficult to find; my GPS at first put us in a residential neighborhood across the street, and when you're actually...More

Loblolly is accessed either through 34th street entrance (about 5 places to park) or 8th Ave (some parking across the street). Nice meandering L shape trail alongside a creek. Walking or rideing a bike.

This lovely park is nestled in between 34th St. and 32nd St. The entrance is a tiny hidden alley at NW 5th Avenue. Go slowly on 34th st. otherwise you will miss it. It only has three parking spots. It is open from dawn to...More
