When living in the nearby area, my family and I would often visit Raccoon River Park. The three mile loop is easy, without much elevation, and my would sometimes bike next to me while I power walked, although it did get a little long at the end for him. The nature is beautiful and the path is very well maintained. Surrounding area has lots to offer with the playground, ball fields, dog run, and beach. I would definitely recommend a hike around the lake.
