A nice stroll through the trees.

We decided we were bored with the local walks and went to the nature preserve. There are tracks for most activities. I was a bit concerned about comments about dogs not in leashes... read more

From the small parking area (about 10 cars capacity) there is a main well mapped and marked 1.5 mile loop for walking or running, with lots of break-off trails for mountain biking. There is also a small trail branching off to the west that leads to more or less wilderness where you can hike out and back a couple miles... More

I don't remember what I expected to see but there wasn't as much wildlife as I have in my back yard. Long walk in to the water and noting impressive...

We decided we were bored with the local walks and went to the nature preserve. There are tracks for most activities. I was a bit concerned about comments about dogs not in leashes but not a problem for us. I didn't hear or see a bird though. The trek itself was a bit short for us so we went around... More

Love this preserved green space along Spring Creek. It is awesome to see some more trees and nature protected. There are great hiking/walking/biking trails to check out. There is bird watching and even the occasional wild hog or alligator near the creek! Great to have this space protected in an area that it rapidly becoming so developed!

Nice spot. To get away for a spell after a hectic week at work. Unfortunately somewhat boggy in places due to the heavy rain during the weekend but that had its advantages as the trail was an oasis of calm. Well worth the visit.

I entered the trailhead in Creekside Park just across from the pavilion. There are a couple miles of trails and side trails down by the river bottom. Some trails go right to Spring Creek but I am not into snakes and alligators so I stayed on the main trails. On other trips I have seen feral pigs and their babies,... More

This place is wonderful. Deeply wooded but great wide trail. Peaceful and Serene. Not too bad in the summer but awesome during cooler months.

We took our mountain bikes here for trail riding. It is nice to have a place to go so close to where we live. The trail can be a little overgrown in places so you can get scratched up easily and the bugs can be bad, but overall we enjoy utilizing this park.

Great fun to take the dogs for a fun play-in-the-woods time. Obviously because it is wooded there are plenty of ticks. Check yourselves and the pups afterwards. Aside from that it's pretty and quite large.

I brought my husband and 3 year old daughter here for the first time today. I had read somewhere that the trails are "stroller friendly" but that is so not the case! There are large tree roots, downed logs, etc so my poor hunny bunny had to carry our daughter while I grappled with the stroller. We took the main... More
