    Lovely little spot!

    This is a fantastic little park nestled within a charming residential neighborhood. While not a huge park, it contains an impressive range of terrain (wooded, grassy, sandy pines, hills) that even dogs of a certain stature can manage. There were a few people fishing and a few biking the trails, and plenty of benches along the route to sit, or not sit and look at me like I’m crazy for wanting a picture. The area is not fenced and the water is easy to get into but not okay to swim in, so leashes are required for dogs. There is plenty of space on the trails for multiple dogs, families, bikes, etc. The waterfowl were impervious to a handful of kids on bikes and one yappy dachshund, just watch out for ground nuggets if your dog has a tendency to partake... 🤢 All in all, a lovely place to spend some time with the furry ones!

    Great place

    Pretty quiet place for being in the middle of civilization. A few more maps around would be helpful just so you know where you are. Very clean n well maintained paths
