Comments: My family is often at this park and I've done this little trail a lot of times already. (I finally did the Regional Trail yesterday, so I thought I would add my two cents for this one.)

This park is truly family-oriented. There is a LOT do to--paddling, picnicing, nature trail, etc.

Of course, my child's favorite is the free water playscape. It's become increasingly crowded since it opened--and word of it has spread to parents all over this area. The weekends are particularly crowded, so we sneak in a few hours during the week around noontime.

The nature trail is a nice walk for everyone, but don't expect much solitude. Just as the park is packed, so is the trail...but nice nevertheless!
