Wonderful place to visit. Great playground for little kids tennis courts and hiking. There are also ponds if you’d like to take the kids fishing. There are plenty of picnic areas to enjoy a whole day.

Scenic view after a lovely hike up the mountain! Great playground for kids. Super well maintained. It has shelters for group picnics, a pond, ducks, fishing, tennis courts and wide field for races or frisbee! Such a lovely park!

Climb this every day and you can forget about your boring stair stepper. On the 4th of July you can enjoy watching from the park or fairgrounds as fireworks fly off the mountain. Have a picnic by the lake

I bring my two children with me so we stop to look at every bug and listen to each bird along the way so I can't tell you for sure. I can tell you it is not a long walk at all and it is worth the walk.
