A paved trail along the New River for walking/running, biking, skating of 3.5mi. Tubing in the summer, tennis courts, picnic shelters with grills and bathrooms and lots of lawn for all kinds of activities. A heaven for any outdoor fan!

Well kept. A great place to ride a bike walk a dog or sit by the river and enjoy a lunch. You can launch a boat or rent a float tube or canoe. Play games on their large fields.

A wonderful place to walk--a creek, the option to inclined path, stay on the level, and/or take steps, Lovely icicles in the winter. Interesting nature talks in the summer. Both shady and sunny paths--and right in city.

This is a great little park with a nice walking/biking trail through the woods and connecting to Bissett Park trails, river, and recreation areas as well as main street/downtown area. Perfect place for a nature walk, run, bike ride, family time playing in the creek.

Beautiful walks along the river. Lots of fairly flat trails for walking. Not too much in the way of bikes, but generally nice people with dogs.
