This was essentially my back yard growing up. From fishing when I was 5 to training for cross country when I was 15. Love this place. Good for all ages and won't disappoint!

it's a nice walk. My only issue is that while walking down a few of the trails you cone to either a locked gate and have to go back instead of being able to walk around the whole place or come to a dirt mound blocking the trail. It would have been nice if they would have put up a sign saying closed access.
the pond they have for fishing is nice, saw one guy bring out a 2foot catfish which he took a pic with then released it which was nice. then do need to clean up the garbage floating in the waters edge.

While i'd raher be way out in nature, its great for what it is-- a nice little quick fix, when you really want to get into nature and don't have time to go on a road trip. It's actually a suburban park, but the setting is so natural feeling, especially if you stick to the inner trails, you feel like you are in fact, out in nature. it's more of a walk than a hike so I would say "very easy" The birds are cool too. You usually see Canadian Geese, random other ducks, herons. Once we got lucky and say a few mama's with their ducklings and goslings. The sunsets are lovely. also, the front park area has a dino-dig area and a mini ethnobotanical garden area with very pretty cacti (and I'm not usually much for them, so that's saying some thing... )
