Natural setting with nice wide walking paths. Plenty of space to sit a spell or take landscape pictures. I'm looking forward to watching the plants grow up in some empty spaces over the years.

This is small to medium sized nature preserve, with a paved, ADA compliant walking trail. The trail is half wooded, with many hickory and oak species, among others, and half meadow. Wild flowers are abundant throughout spring, summer and fall, and attract a wide variety of moths and butterflies. A small shallow pond, with wooden deck overlook, is home a several species of frogs, turtles and snakes.
