Though there are indeed rich woods within the park, the prairie flowers may steal the show and the wetlands offer even more variety. You may forget you are in the city as you walk down what feels like a classic country road. This 237-acre state forest is right inside the city limits. Homesteaders occupied this space in the nineteenth century, but then the county’s correctional facility took over. Army barracks and a Nike missile site also used the space before it became a preserve. The trails show abundant wildflowers in the prairie and woodland areas, and some restored wetlands round out the mix.
