  • It is a small conservation area right in the centre of town a urban forest. about 2.3 km walking trails with nice old oak trees and other plant species. Good for a quick jog for those living around...

  • Really nice spot near the center of town. The surrounding area was flooded, but the trails were all elevated so it was possible to have a nice walk without getting wet. There are helpful trail markers at all the inertsections so you don't get lost.
  • We walk our dog here all the time, we've never had an issue with anyone in the Conservation Area. The walking trail is usually dry even when the water level is high or there's been a lot of rain, and the trails themselves are well groomed. If you are quiet while you walk you might see deer in the distance, there's lots of wildlife in the Conservation Area.
  • I have lot's of fun bringing my family here. Go here at least once a week.. Brought family here again. Kids had lots of fun, meet tons of nice people here. There is a man that comes here every day picks up garbage . He's amazing, friendly.
  • Beautiful trail, love coming here for a walk... but there are always creepy men parked in their vehicles for long periods of time, me being a male feel unsafe at times... i feel for the ladies...
  • Nice park. The authorities should take action on presence of doubtful and creepy men present at parking lot. Not fun! Police needs to check for people with unwelcoming behavior at parking lot!!
