This park is a little bit hidden. It offers a really good view, a good playground and a nice walking trail.

This gem of a park offers picnicking, biking, swimming and a great kids park (esp 2-8 year olds). What people don't always try out is the great inner old-growth forest hiking trails. Or the wildlife-- from eagles to herons, coots, turtles, woodpeckers and owls among...More
