Wonderful place to walk with young children! Many easy to walk trails and a boardwalk built over water which is great for watching bird life!

This is a wonderful place to take a walk. Lot of birds, turtles, ducks and other wild lives. Very well maintained. We are fortunate to have a preserved land for the enjoyment.

Love walking the trails at Broadmoor during any season. Always some wildlife to see along with changing textures and colors of the flora. (It's also great to not have to deal with dog owners letting their dogs off leash on the trails.) Highly recommend an...More
