Tons of wildlife can be found here- deer, turtles, rabbits, geese, ducks and more. Always an adventure to see what you can find. One time saw a turtle burying/laying her eggs, another time saw a snake slithering across lilly pads!

My husband chose this location for us to get married. Our pictures are lovely with the waterfall fountain in the background. This is a very nice park that feels like a sanctuary.

This place seems to always have interesting birds to photograph. Around the river there are always birds, but it seems really beautiful ones like this park.

Great family walking trails with natural habitat. Ducks, birds, geese and deer, too. Well paved trails, go at you own pace or rest in a covered area, or on bench.

Quiet, relaxing, safe and lots of parking available. I purchased lunch and sat in my car to eat it. Then took a 20 minute walk to re-boot my brain plus get a bit of cabin fever reliever after our long, horrible winter. Can't wait to...More
