This is a nice little park and worth a stop. Take some time to relax and enjoy the hiking along the creeks. The kids will thank you for the stop.

Lester Park has so much to offer and then some. Between flowing water falls, hiking trails, huge vast open land, and a park for children; it is the half day outdoor adventure seekers paradise. You will not be disappointed.
