There's is a lot of visit at this park, and bathrooms are conveniently located near the trails. When walking, I was never bored there was always a hidden trail, or water nearby.

We enjoy taking our dog and walking the forested trail around the lake. Usually a quiet place to walk and sit. We’re seniors and enjoy watching Moms and small children. Friendly people. The park could use more and comfortable benches.

Good for a run in nature, dog walks, and you get to learn some things about creatures and critters. It feels like you're in the woods but you can't get lost.

Excellent walking trails....not for bicycles though. Springtime is lovely with all the flowers blooming!

Nice concept but this trail needs security detail. We used to run here but lately see suspicious people and our running group has stopped going here. Also we heard about a man with a gun parking here and going into neighborhoods across the bridge. He...More

Very nice walking park with several well done trails. My dog loves it, but of course he has to be on a leash.

I love to take walks in Olive Park. It is so peaceful and quiet, the trees are plentiful and the shade make it very comfortable for walking on very hot days. I take my grands there for the nature classes, very educational.

This is a very beautiful park in Mansfield, Texas. There are plenty of activities to partake in if you are a semi-active person. There are many trails to either walk or bike ride with a beautiful background of trees and water. Restrooms here were clean...More

Gorgeous setting. Truly a "nature" park - no brightly colored playground, only trails, wildflowers, a pond or two and a treehouse lookout. Discreet plaques give you just enough information about what's on the trails around you, larger maps help you find your way. Perfect place...More
