Lots of people, a decent trail, a playground, etc. They usually have some sort of festival going on here.

Nice trail to run or walk on....usually quiet. Check for events at the stadium parking can get crazy...if something is going on. There are usually homeless people in the woods around the lake but they have always been harmless they feed the stray cats.

The other takes you through a forested canopy over a boardwalk and wooden bridge past... More

Very quiet in the morning. Really crowded in the evenings. People jogging. A lot of squirrels, rabbits, ducks and sometimes a raccoon. Very clean, fresh and convenient.
