One of our favorite places in Springs! Lots of easy trails for kids to hike. There is a creek that winds through that is accessible from many many areas . summer and fall are my favorite times to go because of all the beautiful trees and flowers. During the fall time the leaves are stunning! It’s very well kept - I’ve never seen trash or dog poop on the trails. My favorite area is the curved path where the bench is at (the fall picture below). There is a small bridge over the creek and then this cute little bench. Love it! Wonderful place to spend the day or an afternoon!
Great place to take the family for nature walks. They also have some fantastic elementary school and middle school week long day camps in the summer!
