Great place to take a leisurely walk outdoors. Our dog loves to romp through the park too. Some of the buildings still remain from Bensons Wild Animal Park that many people have fond memories of.

Best local place to go cross country running. With just enough trails to get 5m in and enough variety to keep you from getting bored, Bensons is a winner! Lots of different terrain, from woods to field, to marshland, it's a fantastic place to walk,...More

Benson's has plenty of walking (and biking) trails that will definitely keep you busy for a while. It also has a very nice 9/11 memorial with an actual beam from the building. Some of the structures from when it was a zoo are still there...More
