My husband and I loved the time we spent here. We saw a large variety of trees, wildflowers and other plants. The terrain varied from prairie to woodland. It was a great time spent outdoors!

This park is mainly for people to walk and jog in. There's a lot of wildlife especially deer. I've seen a few red foxes too. The park connects to Evergreen park which is also nice to explore.
