I found the gates to the front entrance locked and couldn't find any info on the internet about when the park actually opened, so I drove to the nearest parking lot, intending to walk around the park until I could find an entrance. But I saw a sign stating the dentist office where I was would tow 24 hours a day and didn't feel like daring them to do it. I found another entrance to the park, also with locked gates, but thankfully by the time I got back to the main entrance, it was open.
I had a hard time finding the park's trails until I finally realized they're on the map, but look like roads instead of trails. And I was bummed to find that even though the park is huge, most of it's conservation land and there are very few trails.
One of the longer stretches of trail runs behind the houses surrounding the park. It's pretty, but I wouldn't want to live with a park just over my fence. Unless it was Lord Hill Park. But this is no Lord Hill Park, and these houses are much smaller than the ones out there.
Because the park's not very big, I had to leave and walk a complete loop around it. Hopefully nobody thought I was taking a photo of the house this web was in front of.
One of my pet peeves.
Back in the park again, I completed the rest of the trails.
This photo I took upside-down by the fishing pond is one of my favorites that I've taken.
I covet the park's rooster statue.

That park's ok. I can't imagine I'll go back, though. It's pretty far away, as you can see from the video of the drive back. And since I spent as much time walking on streets as I did on trails, it's just not worth it. I went out of my way to drive above the riverfront to try to see what was going on down there, but couldn't get a good glimpse.
