This is a very nice park that has some well thought-out nature hike trails. It's a great place to get your mind away from City Life and experienced a little of nature!

It’s really pretty and going for walking or jogging, but so crowded on the weekends it’s hard to keep a pace without having to weave in and out of people or groups.
