Wonderful nature preserve. Beautiful place for a hike or a bike ride. Free admission and parking. They offer bicycle rentals. Meticulously maintained facility. Check out the arboretum, the Orchid Range Meadow, turtle and otter lakes. The great falls is a man made waterfall, but worth checking out. The waterfall only runs for short durations 4x daily. They turn on the falls shortly after 10am, 12 noon, 2pm and 4pm.
A very beautiful park with trails, sculptures and waterfalls! It was a cold day, but we still enjoyed being in the nature away from the hustle and bustle of the city! So much needed outdoors therapy! I would love to go back during the spring to see all the flowers blooming and the main waterfall running! It’s a free park, very clean and pretty! We will certainly go back!
