While touring the historic sites, my daughter wanted to visit a park and play a little. It was a hot day, so this park was a great choice. It's shady, so I didn't roast while watching her play.

Easy walk for all levels of hikers, nice trail to walk along for families and enjoy nature. There is also a jumping rock not to far from this near the pool before you enter the park that people of all ages can enjoy.

We took a 4 year old to this park. Small creek allowed for walking in the water and throwing pebbles. The fossil wall or cliff that is located in the park is fantastic. We had a picnic under lots of trees. Nice walking paths

A nice park that you can take the family to. You have a choice of taking the more rugged trails or catch the paved path at the top of the parking lot. It can get a bit crowded and has limited parking. To get to...More

If you are looking for a place to burn off food and see nice scenery, it is a great place to do it. Short walking trail along the river, longer bike/run/walk route.
