Nice woodland area with short circular walks along the North River. Fishing I believe is also available. Is quite flat and not too strenuous.

Great for a short stroll or a full 2 mile + go around, highly recommended. This is the place I caught the hiking bug so be very careful, it's pretty contagious here :)
