This is a small park with a paved trail that loops around a small lake. The loop is only .6 miles (1 km). There is a spur trail that is about .5 miles. The last time I was here, I had a few hours to wait for my car to have work done. I made 3 loops around the lake and went out the end of the spur trail and back. Add in the .8 miles between the park and the mechanic shop, and I walked a total of about 5 miles that day. It was a splendid clear sunny winter day. I think the temp was around 15 degrees farenheit (-10 C). I could have been more comfortable if I had another layer for my face, but it was not bad. I needed to stay out of the wind and this park made that easy because of all the trees. The industrial areas nearby have expanded in recent years which causes the trail to be less of an escape from the city than it used to be. It is still my favorite for a quick walk between errands.
