Nice park not over run by people. Many areas are secluded and far enough from traffic noise an pollution.

It's nice walking through Ellison Park. You can even see people horseback riding on the trail. I went up to a rider and asked if you can rent horse and do trail rides and then said yes and are open year round. Awesome!!!
