    Good mtb trails, just a lot of people and dogs. Go off peak, it's better then.

    We love to take our dog here to play in the creeks. Pretty much the entire park is an off leash area! So many trails to explore.

    The walking trails keep getting better and better with recent renovations. This park is much bigger than you'd think.

    Hiking is great, though construction has closed off some of my favorite areas to get lost in.

    I absolutely love coming here with my dog. She loves all the trials and the water is of course her favorite. It's a gorgeous place to come and even just walk through. I come as often as I can!

    The trails here are much better for mountain bikes than they are for joggers.

    Shout out to the lady who warned me not to step off the trails because of poison ivy. So I'll pass along the memo...

    Great park in the middle of the city. Lots of trails - easy to get lost but always easy to find your way back. Bikers galore, so if you're running, be sure to listen for their heads up.

    My dogs love this place. After the long walking, they love to dive into the creek. The water is so clear. Every angle of this park offers a nice view to take great photos. Don't forget your camera!

    I love this park but if your dog is skittish aroundb bikes these trails may not be for you. It is great to do some legal offleash hiking though!

    Bring your dog for a walk or jog and lose yourself amongst the trails. There is also an off-leash dog area!

    Be aware that the "P" signs on trails north of creek go to parking lot, but ths signs south of the creek point to the neighborhood. Can be deceptive.
