  • The perfect place to get out and experience nature while getting exercise and escaping for a little while the negative effects of being in isolation (COVID). Lots of room to roam, and keep distance....  more »
  • Always beautiful, and a great outdoor activity. Now that the fall colors are turning, this place is probably at its best. Explore the grounds, and look for the one connecting point to the Greenway.....  more »

  • Such a cute place to go for a walk!! You can go take some awesome pictures too. It’s very relaxing. I always like going in the morning for a little walk. I recommend stopping by during the summer, the roses are beautiful! The cute statues are awesome if you walk a little further down. (:
  • Beautiful park and a great place to play Pokemon Go. Love the variety of trees and shade. My favorite portion is the Japanese garden in the middle of the park. It has a cute water feature and lots of cute little frogs.
