I live near this park. I walk my chihuahua there 2-3 times weekly. Park is less than 35 Acres. In the middle of the park is a nicely paved trial barely .5 mile long. If you go on the northside of the park is a trial the boy and I like called panther springs trail. Before you know it you are facing a dam (Aquifer Recharge) Sometimes we go up for cool views or just turn back. Nice park for a congested area. Maybe I'll see you there?
