We have enjoyed the walk many times in all 4seasons. The boardwalk section is great for families. It is picturesque and peaceful especially in the winter as you can watch the ice flows. The Autumn is spectacular with the colors reflecting off the water.

Great place for a walk that allows you to catch a breeze off the water and see wildlife. It is one of my favorite go to places for photography

Enjoyable easy walk for all ages. Includes boardwalk and woods walk. Beautiful view of water and fall leaves that are still hanging on. Hope to go back in the spring.

I would have given this park 5 stars but there are no public bathrooms or shelters to enjoy. The park is unique and quiet and hidden so it's a nice place to walk or relax.

Easy, scenic walk. End up at one of the restaurants by the marina for a cold beer and lunch and you've got a very nice afternoon!

Off the beaten path, but a great place to start a bike trip to Charlotte beach and pier area. Well kept bike trail and also quite scenic.

The boardwalk was a pretty neat part of this hike. You got to hike over it and be right on the water. There was a couple of swans protecting some of their eggs in a nest, which was neat. We also saw geese and mallards...More
