Take your kids to spooky mill at the end of October. My son volunteered last year and it was great. They have lots of fun activities for kids including a haunted house, bounce house, crafts, storytelling and more. Great event.

This park is nestled right next to residential neighborhoods. However, it is still secluded and impressive. They have many rescued animals also on-site. The trails are covered by trees and there is a beautiful creek that runs along the outer perimeter. This is a very...More

We have been walking these trails for 10 years and always see something new. We love that they support the Boy Scouts by having a never ending list of Eagle projects, including our sons!
