good option to walk, ride bicycle or play with kids but, the best part is the Glacial Drumlin trail with 35 miles (paved). Excellent option for ride bicycle or training.

This is a nice park for lingering, walking, exercising, and picnicking. Boat rentals available on the river. The formal garden alone is worth the visit. (in season, many wedding photography sessions occur) Kid friendly. Near the downtown area.
