As with all Jackson parks, the big was safe, clean, well maintained and nice to traverse. The boardwalks allow you to be close with the natural vibe. Lighted parking lots, water and restroom availability made it a good 90 minute spot for grandpa and grandson.

This is a beautiful park, with a very nIce playground for the kids and very nice walking track. There is a gazebo on the pond. Nature all around you. Nice place to picnic with your family or just get away by yourself.

The path takes you behind the high school and through the bog area. Here there are many plants that only grow in this type of environment, with placards along the way to educate. Peaceful, lovely hike with benches occassionally so one can sit and reflect....More

This is a great area if you enjoy the outdoors. Bring your bug spray and a water bottle because you will need it. You should be somewhat fit because there are some hills to get back to the bog. There are signs showing the way,...More
