But bring your bug spray, mosquito's are bad at times! A lot of different paths to take, which makes it a lot of fun. Always a lot of people there.

This park offers a great walk, run & bike about. Ducks and Geese. Very clear water and fish. The tall pines that surround the reservoir make it pop. The parking is very tight but I see it's the norm to park on RT 202. This...More
