This park has been around for quite a while and that shows (in a good way) in it's shade trees, resident animals, and thought out trails. There is plenty of parking, playgrounds, disc golf, a children's "safety village", walking trails, pavilions, sledding in the winter, etc. The nature center features an auditorium for programs, and an observation window where you can see a surprising variety of wildlife. In the past this park has had problems with unsavory sorts of people, but recently have heard nothing but good. The trails are decent - mostly paved with some wooden walkways over water logged areas. Great opportunity for bird watchers. On my last visit we saw many bird species, a few snakes, and even a fox through the observation window. The paved streets are often used by joggers/ runners as they make a loop. Some years it is a good place for morels (unofficially) - you might get a reminder to stay on the trails. It's also a great space for blanket picnics - there is enough room that you can get decently far enough away from the playground and trails that it is pretty quiet.
