This park has everything in it. The playground os great. The nature trils and duck pond make you feel like you are in the middle of the country but you are not. You should stop there if in the area.

This park offers natural beauty and one can literally drive through it or you will best enjoy it walking on its many trails. It is such a lovely addition to the beautiful Wilmington landscape!
