For a "city park" this has great trails and easy access. There are paved trails as well as one or two slightly more difficult unpaved trails with a couple bridges. We take our pup there for walks and the occasional program that they run. Only complaint would be that those that walk their animals and leave their droppings be a little more mindful. Otherwise a great park!

One of the smaller of the Great Parks, but has good gift shop, and lots of activities scheduled, like sugar-making, and art exhibits.

Wonderful variety of items and their gift shop. Great trails to walk through their wooded area. And programming for all ages

Farbach is close to my home and I walk 3 or 4 days a week. I enjoy being in the woods it fills my spirit.

A great place for a peaceful walk on easier hiking trails. Absolutely beautiful scenery, with well kept grounds.
