This area is amazing. Plants and trees have identification. Trails are clean and easy to walk. Benches in many places and lots of shade and comfort.

Go for a hike, and see all this has to offer. Many interesting Plants and trees. If you can get a tour, even better. You can also check out the Hamilton gardens.
