Really nice park that includes trails through trees and open fields. There are some pretty good hills if you want a workout. You can also go quite a way through the hills for a cross country ride or hike. There are a few water fountains...More

We stopped by just to view the main building. Staff were very friendly and told us more about the place and the recent renovations to the dining area. Beautiful surroundings. We did not stay for a meal, but I'm sure it would have been excellent.
