This is a beautiful free park minutes from the airport. The park offers hiking. Fishing, walking trails, and a view of the zoo. You can sit on top of a hill and see the zoo animals.

Climb stairs to get to the top, in the back. Feel the breeze and fall in love with the sites. Stop at all stops on the way to the top. Park at each free and see the pond, picnic areas too.
