The walking paths are nice for walking or running. Great for walking the dog and kids for exercise or to just be together. The fountain is gorgeous and the grounds are beautifully kept.

Enjoy nature with a fun walk or run through a splendid wooded trail. Watch out for deer along the way; they're everywhere! Avoid during damp weather or your shoes will get muddy!

Wonderful area. Mapped 5K walk/run trail is a great way to know what you've done. Terrific views and trails. Pavilion and amphitheater are nice places to sit and unwind. Saw a deer that allowed us to get close and pass it, within 5 feet, but lost interest in us. Great place to unwind and relax.

This was a nice, serene walk through a reserve with a meandering creek throughout. The group that set this up did it right. Got to see some deer too. My only advice is to bring some bug spray, as you walk in the shadowed areas, the mosquitos come out.

The Watershed itself is beautiful with a short trail and lovely benches and water features. We happened by there when they were having their weekly organic farm market. It was a beautiful setting and a nice relaxing place to get away.

This place was great for nature lovers. There are so many paths to go on and endless routes. There was so much wildlife to see and lots of shade. Lots of photography opportunities.
