ADA Accessible Completely paved path. Sand can wash onto the path in some areas after flooding though.

Family Friendly Perfect area to take the kids within the city to experience nature

Description

The main path through the park is a paved trail, but there are many other natural surfaces to explore. Animal trails are everywhere and offer exploration wherever you like. I simply mapped some of the main paths off the paved trails.

Flora & Fauna

Deer and critters are everywhere. Osage orange and Locust trees dominate the park. Look for all the amazing thorny trees!

This bridge across the Cowskin Creek is the location of many family photos.

This dead Honey Locust tree is COMPLETELY wrapped in poison ivy!  The city should probably remove this...

This is a short loop for kids to experience a trail, but parents not to commit to a long distance...

The paved path is very wide and a great place to bring your family!

This area could be covered in water if it's rained a lot recently and you may have go to the North to walk around it. There's plenty of other animal trails to take you there.
