A Days at Woodland Tr

This amazing park offers almost 350 acres of recreational space you can enjoy all year round, even during snowy winter months. During warmer seasons, visitors to Woodland Trails Park can enjoy its picnic areas, paved trails for biking, and unpaved trails for hiking. When snow falls, there is plenty of space for cross-country skiing. You can also enjoy year-round birdwatching thanks to the park's variety of open space, wooded areas, and wetlands. This variety of terrain gives you the opportunity to observe the seasonal change and how it affects the surrounding natural landscape in an unspoiled natural area.
