Had a great time hear with a friend. Beautiful park with great open trails for walking, running or biking. Wildlife around every corner. Will go back for sure.

Miles of bike or walking paths, including along the river, make this a great place for a sunny afternoon. Watch a blue heron on a sandbar, pick wild blackberries in August, or take your dog to the only off-leash dog park in the county.

This is a large expanse of land that accommodates hikers, bicyclers, and dog owners. It is easily entered and always popular with the locals. The recent addition of the pedestrian bridge from the waterfront park adds to its accessibility.
