Great playground area that is all custom built and includes a large sandbox area with shovels and rakes for the kids to play with. They have several portch swings and picnic tables for lunch and adults to sit down at. We didn't go on the trails this time, but from what we did go on, things looked to be well kept and looked like there were several nice nature trails. We'll definitely be back!

A great place to just walk around and slow down for a bit. There is a nice playground for little ones made mostly of things from the forest. The reason why I'm giving this three starts is because I went the other day and they "mowed" all of the underbrush! Now it just feels like you are walking through a construction zone. Sad. Hopefully it will recover quickly.

Easily the best park in Auburn. The trails are very pedestrian friendly without sacrificing any of the views, which are incredibly scenic. Great for running, or just enjoying nature.
