A few minutes from home takes you back to nature. The park is refreshing to walk around. There is also a playground and a pool.

This is a great place to take family photos. The scenery is beautiful. It's also a nice place for family reunions. There is a lot of space. It has a great children's playground, hiking, and a beautiful lake to fish or go boating.

In this area, bears are a reality. As a hiker, you must always be aware of your surroundings and movement at a distance. Never try to get a better look or go near a cub.
