It’s always great to find a new trail. This paved trail around the flood-control retention ponds was opened in August 2008 and takes advantage of both the forest and the ponds. An area was cleared for the ponds in this 500-acre park’s forest, and the fish and birds moved in quickly. A curving boardwalk with observation platforms and benches crosses the main pond and provides many good photo ops. Start the trail, which is all on concrete sidewalks with a few minor up-and-down grades, from the northeast side of the parking area. The sidewalks are just inside the park gate. Take the right branch of the trail, heading away from the soccer fields. Two pavilions and a playground are on the left. Follow the trail as it veers left past the tennis courts.
