Something for everyone

I was able to come here to take photographs, while my friends did their own thing. Lots of stuff for everyone involved which was nice.

Beautiful

This park is a beautiful place to just sit and relax. If that isn't your thing, you can go swimming, hiking, biking, or play frisbee golf. It has a little bit of everything.

Went For A Hike, But There's So Much More

The trail I went on with my sister was well maintained and took us about halfway around the lake in the center of the park. There were some gorgeous moments where the sun would fall through the trees and do its thing over the surface, and later we set up some enos and hung out in a glade. Lots of space and a good place to explore, will definitely go back :)
