Lots to offer, not many people

Nature Trail
The nature trail portion of park was completely empty and the mulched path made the going easy. This is where to find solitude in the park.

Comments: For a multi-use park, there weren't a lot of people here. Even the hike and bike trail provided a bit of solitude in places. This park could easily handle several times the number. Maybe they're planning on Williamson County growing lots more.

On the nature trail portion of the park I didn't see or hear another person at all. The nature trail features a soft mulch surface throughout its length, making it easy on the feet.
