This is a popluar place for parties, scout troups, bikes, hikes and geocahcers.  Weekends are filled with children.  During the week, at this park, I was one of the lucky few who have seen the bobcats here.  I saw three.  They came to drink at the creek while I was sitting by the creek thinking. We were both startled and the ran off as soon as they saw me.  I have also seen a coyote here before and while I have not seen the beavers, the top, northern trails show how they tople trees left and right.

Great park and trails but way crowded.  They have also added bike trails lately and it is easy to get run over! LOTS of geocaches on this park.  Nice place in the middle of the city area.
