My favorite metropark! Five trails, all color coded - each very different from the other! The red trail takes you way upto the highland woods with many twists and turns. The blue trail goes down to the creek and has a boardwalk over the swampy riverbed. Such a variety of wild life - if you go early you can see the deer - especially on the blue trail! The prairie trail has many wildflowers and birds and the trail is not hilly like the blue & red. There are also picnic areas, swings & slides for the little ones and bike trails. The Stranahan Homes' Stables are converted into offices, restrooms, resting area and a wonderful window of wildlife where you can view the forest animals eating seed, suet or drinking from the pond. There is also a bee hive window to observe. The Stranahan Home is also available to tour and has lovely gardens at the end of the blue trail.
