Located within the city limits this park offers several hiking trails as well as picnic area. One of its hallmarks is its waterfalls. Unfortunately the area has not had significant rain for weeks and the falls were merely a trickle. Still an enjoyable afternoon for...More

What a great place for bike trails! Had never gone but there is amazing work done there for bikers! Trails for days and very well maintained. The bike park is awesome for kids learning how to go over obstacles and jumps very impressed!

A beautiful, peaceful place to visit. Take a picnic lunch, listen quite often to entertainment from the bandshell, hike to the falls or challenge yourself to a climb up Jacob’s Ladder and let the kids explore the playpark. Lots to do here or simply relax...More

Has a wonderful hiking trail, that is not difficult for anyone. Jacob's ladder for the brave and hardy that can make it up all those steps. A great playground and the best swimming pool. Lots of picnic area too.

Various paths available for the seasoned hiker and the casual walker. Also swimming in the falls area or the pool.

Even if you are not into hiking this is a nice stop for a couple hours or you could choose to stay longer. We opted for the shorter route as we were traveling much further that day but needed to get out and stretch. excellent...More

The main trail into the park is very popular. On it, you will pass Jacobs ladder (180+ wood plank stairs), after the ladder you can cross a bridge over a small river (you’ll see a gazebo with benches inside). Or continue on... More
