“Don't overlook the Cedarock Historic Farm in the park”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

This is a good example of farm life in the 19th century. The tours are self guided during business hours and guided tours are by appointment. The Garrett's built a small one room cabin in 1830 and lived in it while they spent 5 years building the 2-story home. The cabin was then used as the kitchen. The farm survived the Civil War.

“Perfect for Hiking”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I regularly hike the blue, white, and green trails as a single loop. This route is around 4.25 miles long and it usually takes me about an hour and twenty minutes to complete. It is a nice quiet hike that gives me the feeling of being deep in a wilderness. Try it. You may just fall in love with it too.

“Very nice surprise!!!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Rode the horse trails today for the first time in several years. A nice surprise! I was glad to see they moved the trails away from the frisbee golf course and made new trails and made them easier to follow. This is was well thought out and well done. Burlington has a new jewel and I will definately be back! Also, everything else about this park looks top notch! Very neat and clean!

“great for the family”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Great time in the outdoors. We had a picnic and took a hike. It is so peaceful and the kids had a awesome time. Plenty to do as a family. Basketball, horse shoes, disc golf, play area, fishing pond, water fall and lots of open space to throw the football or Frisbee. Pet friendly too !
