“Great town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

The Carroll creek linear park extends through town with Baker park at one end and the train station at the other. Plenty of dining choices creekside and a pleasant walk. The painted bridge is hand painted artwork making the bridge look like stone work. Look closely and see figures in the stones.

“Sunday stroll after brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

We passed by this park on our way to The Wine kitchen where we had our brunch. There was an art festival in the park. So many things to see, they also had food tents .
Beautiful bridge , picture perfect.

“Lovely park and walking trail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

In my opinion: The tromp l'oeil paint on the walls and along the bridge supports was just great to look at. I especially like finding the duck on one of the bridge supports. The trail is tree-lined and the creek runs between the two sides of the trail. It is a peaceful and pretty trail to walk on. Note that bicycles also use this trail. There is no guard rail to prevent someone from falling in.

“Nice trail to walk around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Carrol Creek park is a nice long trail that goes from downtown to Baker park. In the spring and summer, the trees that line the park are really beautiful, and the walk is very pleasant and easy. The trail ends in the dog park near Baker park, which is also fun to watch. You can also bike on the linear trail.

“Perfect stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Fantastic layout and a lovely stroll with adornments by the nearby art school really make this a delight. Several food choices along the way,but watching the linear creek as it blooms is awesome. Library has a nice patio for relaxing and taking In the view. Can be some rather skanky people at times along the way, but I guess that is part of the people watching.
