Kids will love feeding the chipmunks and birds as they come right up to your hand! Trails are well-maintained and offer beautiful scenery. Unfortunately, parking is not free. Do not go after 5 pm - the chipmunks don't come out.

If you love nature this is the place to go. We've been going here for years and used to be only a few there now it's usually busy. Bring bird seed to feed the many different types of birds, chipmunks and squirrels.

I love taking the kids down. They love seeing the wildlife up close. Learning about trees and spending family time together.

I’ve been in to Cherry Hill in the summer, and it’s always great. The trail is long with hills, flat parts, grass and dirt. Definitely recommend stopping!
