I came here for a 70 degree day in February. The trail was maintained and was well lit. I saw people walking kids and biking. I would recommend this place.

A smelly lake that connects various parts of the greenway system. Floods often when raining and could use some groundskeeping.

Shelley Lake is a favorite place for locals to walk, run and bike. The trails are well maintained. Be sure to take some old bread or ceral to feed the ducks.

I love everything about this park because the nature is what brings me back. It's great if you want to exercise, fish, walk your dog or bike ride.

Great Lake to walk around as the scenery changes and very popular with families and dog walkers. Go early morning in summer before it gets hot, great to walk in the afternoon on cooler days. Kids play area by car parking as well
