“Some sun, some shade”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

It's a well managed, converted landfill site. 3 mile paved walking/cycling path with half in sunlight and half in treed shade. There's a small children's playground with drinking water available.

“Nice quite park with paved trail...”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

Great for either biking, roller blading, or just walking. Very few people, even on weekends. We walk the great circle and and it goes from sun to shade. Really enjoy this park.

“great park to walk in”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

safe enough to walk alone or bring some friends. The landscape actually differs throughout the 3 mile walk. About half of the trail is in direct sun, so bring water and a hat! Sometimes, you can see the RC Squadron folks flying their planes.

“Nice little park”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

I was not eager to write this since it will increase the number of people using it. It is a nice, little park. Small playground and a nice walking trail. What makes this place really interesting is the Model Airplane Shows that are on some weekends. If you see the sign at the entrance on those weekends...go in...it is fun for the kids to watch.

“Easy trail to walk/bike”
Reviewed 1 December 2012

Easy ride to walk and bike. Fabulous picnic area. The park has a closing time, and you will be locked in if you don't leave on time!
