Limited hours but still worth it considering the governor and his family currently live there. The scenery was beautiful and the tour was free! Our guide was very helpful and informative!

We had no clue that this was around. Unfortunately we weren't able to access the main entry way was closed off to the public for some get together that was happening. So we went around to the west side, and found many more trails from there. These are not for wheelchairs or anyone that cannot walk, as they are VERY rough and steep. However it is fun to find them, and walk them, and there are many trails off of a trail. We were not prepared for this type of hiking for 80 degree weather, so we cut it as short as we could, and it still took a long time. I (with 4 of my children) enjoyed the hiking. We will definitely be returning and trying out some more trails, and those that verge off of others. :)

I've lived in Kansas for over 20 years and never knew where the governor's mansion was! Well, now we know. It is in a beautiful, quiet, well-to-do neighborhood in Topeka. We drove by just to see the house and were surprised to see there is a park there. (My kids commented on how awkward it would be if your dog pooped on the governor's lawn.) We did not get out and enjoy the park, although it was a Wednesday afternoon and there were 3-4 people there - a runner, a dog walker, and a hiker. Beautiful country setting.

Compared to the entire city of Topeka, this is a nice area and location. You could go hiking on this trial, biking, walking, and golf course near by. Safe and all dogs on leash so no worries about a little guy picking on the big guy :D
