“Lovely place for a walk and a little history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

This park has beautiful walks and an interesting past. Even people who can't do strenuous walking or parents pushing strollers will find some nice activity here. This is a great place to take your kids; they'll love the old stone building foundations of a lost village. For an activity, you could have them draw a map of the foundation shapes, then draw in their ideas of what the buildings might have looked like 150 years ago. Grass is kept mowed on walking areas, so you don't have to worry so much about ticks here. Very peaceful!

“Great, easy walk for all ages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Beautiful trails that are mostly flat, easy for all ages and perfect for a short walk for easily bored kids and a longer walk for adults of all ages. Never crowded.

“Love it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a very beautiful state park. It is very serene. Great walking trails, beautiful view of the lake w/seating, & a great place to take pictures or just enjoy the beauty of nature. Have been many times & every time family or friends visit, this is a nice place to take them. Lots of flowers in the Spring, lots of foliage in the Fall.

“springtime is bloom time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Great place for a walk from just strolling to a bit of a hike. Pretty when all of the bushes are blooming. Plenty of parking. And there are public restrooms (important for us older people).
