This place is not very well advertised but it does have chevroned trails surrounding an old reservoir. There is not much signage and no evidence of other nature there. We did like the wetlands boardwalk.

This volunteer run park has pretty surroundings with paths. These trails are easily walkable.. Flowers, plants, and lots of different mushrooms are there for one to peruse. It is really worth a look if in Morgantown, and especially if you are a nature lover!

The website made it seem like it was a botanical garden. Yes, eventually it will be one but they are still developing the plans for the construction. So pretty much it is swamp land with trails/boardwalk cut through it. It was a nice walk on...More
