Scenic view after a lovely hike up the mountain! Great playground for kids. Super well maintained. It has shelters for group picnics, a pond, ducks, fishing, tennis courts and wide field for races or frisbee! Such a lovely park!

Climb this every day and you can forget about your boring stair stepper. On the 4th of July you can enjoy watching from the park or fairgrounds as fireworks fly off the mountain. Have a picnic by the lake

A must see place! From the park which is lively you have to hike up a fairly steep hill but the path is very well maintained. Once at the top it is beautiful. Take a picnic lunch and a blanket and enjoy!

If you visit this park be sure to climb the trail to the top. Great hike and an excellent view. Also a great place to picnic and pick up some great walnuts when in season.

I bring my two children with me so we stop to look at every bug and listen to each bird along the way so I can't tell you for sure. I can tell you it is not a long walk at all and it is worth the walk.
