We walk in the park every day. You can take a quick 30 minute walk or a longer walk on the many trails.

Excellent place for a dog walk, run, family picnic, yoga, you name it. If you're in the area and don't visit, you're missing out on this beautiful historic park.

This is a 410 acre park with a 2.4 mile driving loop (you share it with bikers and walkers so watch out for them). One lane is for cars and the other lane is for the recreational users. To follow the loop keep turning left....More

No fee to get in, and I am with you on the age and all, but we ride/walk and I suggest the fall to do the walk/ride. It is hilly but I suggest to drive it and pick your area, some hills are worse than others.
