Watch the leaves change while you walk, run, or bike the paved trails. There are rougher mountain bike trails as well, so whether you are getting in miles to train for a race or going on a casual walk, there is space for everyone. There is also a large playground and an off-leash dog park with wooded areas to explore. The prairies, streams, and swamp areas are beautiful this time of year before the snow takes over.
