We are hikers and enjoyed these trails on weekdays when there were only one of two bikers enjoying the jumps and rails interspersed among the trees. We found ourselves surprisingly grateful to the biking group that maintains the trails in such top notch condition. Props to them.

Tucked away in a corner of James City County, fairly close to Williamsburg this park has walking trails, a club house, some exhibits and outdoor seating/picnic tables. It is staffed by JCC employees. The is also a botanical garden which is maintained by the local Master Gardener Assn. Great place to get away from the maddening crowd

Clean rest rooms, bike wash station. authentic Williamsburg type structure, ample parking, excellent hiking - suggestion mark the trees with color coded markers. With all of the leaves on the ground and recent rains it was hard to follow the trail at times. Never got lost just would have made it easier. Thanks to those who do maintain the area.

Love to take my dog there to walk the trails. There are several interesting things to see there ... the Botanical Gardens, Go Ape and a reconstruction of a plantation house.

We attended a delightful wedding reception at Freedom Park. Tents were set up on the back upper patio. The air conditioned building was set up with two buffet serving lines for catered food. The sound system may have been provided by the hosts. In any event the music and dancing contributed to a fun happy occasion.

My husband and I dropped by to see the garden. It was small, but had lovely ideas to try at home. There were lots of other activities on the grounds as well.

This is a nice set of mountain bike trails which can be written in pieces or as one large ride up to 20 miles. Some routes not too technical there are optional difficult features that of been made but you can ride around them.
