This beautiful park is a wonderful place to walk, bike, or ride through with its wide, well-paved paths that can even accommodate golf carts or vehicles. Large trees provide ample shade and more than a dozen picnic tables beckon you to pack up a picnic basket to enjoy a meal al fresco. There is also a screened-in picnic area.
