A nice county park that's not out in the middle of nowhere. I hadn't been there for years and there have been improvements. Nice facilities, nice trails along the river, and good areas to view eagles and ospreys nesting in the area.

St. Pat's is a true gem - beautiful trails, pavillions and waterfront location. Park could be more user friendly - bikes not allowed on trails, poor/lack of grooming on the cross country trails in winter. Nice play ground area for kids and great places to...More
