I love getting "away" from the neighborhoods in this park. You can forget you are surrounded by roads and see some birds, turtles, and fish in the pond or streams.

I frequently walk the trails and ball field area of EC Lawrence. The trails are well kept, and a nice walk in a suburban environment. I see woodpeckers, hawks, bluejays, deer, foxes, and sometimes turkeys on my walks. It's a testament to "adaption" in nature...More
