Sharon Woods park is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It is an oasis of outdoors life in the city. Take a look at my picture of a beautiful sunset.

This park is well managed with planned activities. The trails are paved so they are accessible to anyone. They have fishing gear for you to borrow and nice picnicking areas.

I love the 3.8 mile ADA walking loop. It goes through woods and by meadows. It has a nice mix of flat and inclined parts. There are plenty of squirrels and birds around.

Love this park - especially for the fully paved paths through the park which is close to 4 miles. Some wood, and grassy fields. Gentle hills part of paved path. Playground and fishing pond.
