Great trails for hikers or bikers. Botanical Garden, a separate Nature Center, golf course, archery and a sweet outdoor Brewery section with a food truck. I am sure I am missing something. Would go back👍🏽

This is a very nice park. Big ponds. Excellent location to explore, hike and walk. We relaxed on the very nice deck at the golf course clubhouse. Highly recommend. Will be back to check out the beer garden.

Whitnall Park has many picnic areas. Picnic Area 1 has a Beer Garden open daily. A great spot to meet with friends and meet new friends. Can get a little crowded at times. Many varieties of beer available and food.

This park is large but well maintained, great walking trails, we often saw deer, and lots of birds, the kids like rolling down a grassy hill there

Forsythia bloom on year old wood. If you have an older plant and you haven't been pruning it back, it won't bloom. Sometimes, after a particularly hard winter, the plants won't bloom the following spring.

There are several picnic areas with park- authorized grills already at Whitnall. We have used them often, but be prepared for a crowd on weekends. Enjoy!
