Beautiful, easy hiking trails. The fairy trail is amazing and perfect for kids. There is also a playground, fitness course, garden, and house to explore. Definitely worth a stop, especially for the kids!

We come here often in all seasons. We love the winter when not so cold because you can really see the colorful birds flying about and the deer. It is a nice relaxing walk through the woods that anyone can do.
