I love this place. Sometimes on the trails I can forget that I’m in the middle of a 100k+ city. It is sufficiently forested to remove the bulk of the city noise and allow me to attune myself to sounds of nature. I can trek the trails for a couple of hours and not walk the entirety of the grounds. I would definitely recommend going in the fall and the spring. Nature’s fireworks are on full display during these seasons. Consider buying a membership if you like places like these.
Restrooms: Very clean and well maintained.
Dog-friendliness: Very popular place to walk one’s dog. Everyone seems to be very courteous with dogs on leashes and cleaning up after their pets.
