    Excellent Place to Walk

    We parked by the lake and then walked behind the classroom building to follow the green trail and had a beautiful walk. There are several dog friendly trails and highly recommend this park!

    Nice park with plenty of trail options

    We were informed that the only place wherebdogs are not allowed is the beach. Many trails to choose from so that you can adapt depending on the heat/ humidity. Beautiful surroundings

    The trails that allow dogs are sandy and eroded. Would pick other trails in the area over these
