We are regulars here. Whether it's for a hike in the woods, seeing a free show, a picnic with some Frisbee throwing, or a little of each. Great paths for some easy hikes. Fun/educational things for the kids. On Saturday afternoons, in the summer, they...More

Looking for a local place to stretch your legs? This works. Wooded with stream, and forest creatures. Part paved, part gravel. Stroller ok. Enjoy.

Nature center filled with local history and visual displays. Beautiful pond off Walney road with a pavillion perfect for a cookout or picnic. Hiking trails run through the square mile of property surrounding the park. Also a great place to just chill out and enjoy...More
