A network of hiking and equestrian trails, with some bicycling trails. Of interest for its surficial geology features, with large glacial erratic boulders dropped at end of last great ice age. An example of a successful restoration of former sand and gravel quarries.
Trails are graded for pedestrian-only, for horse and pedestrian, or for bicycle-horse-pedestrian (see map). Bicycles can cross park in easterly or westerly direction using an appropriate trail. Lots of off-trail grassland is open for horses.
