This is a great place to go hike, play disc golf, or visit the nature center. Have visited several times over the years.

The trails here are interesting. There are several playgrounds, but we recommend the furthest back by the nature center, with musical instruments. The nature center itself is small, but interesting. A good place to take small children.
