My wife & I took a slow drive inside McDonnell Park about a month ago for familiarity (we're new to the area), and we were impressed by the remoteness & the green spaces & the well maintained facilities (2 playgrounds, two picnic shelters, other picnic tables & benches, public restrooms, and a meandering walking trail with fitness station stops). So we returned recently on a Sunday evening so I could get in my daily walk on as the temperatures cooled down.

The loop trail is described as a figure 8, though it's the oddest shaped "8" I've ever encountered. But the occasionally hilly paved trail is maintained and passes through several wooded sections of the park with tall trees & central green spaces. With the exception of occasional muffled traffic noise from Adie Road north & southbound, my brisk walk was very peaceful.

We will return to McDonnell Park for future walks & occasional picnics. It's easy to overlook, but worth seeking out.
