A pleasant walk on this short, paved path is just the basics. But sometimes, that's all you need.

Where • At the end of Meadowfern Drive, Crestwood.

How long • 2.27 miles.

Surface • Asphalt.

Difficulty • Easy with gentle hills.

Can be used for • Walking, jogging, bicycling and skating.

Description • The complex of trails is made of four short segments, the longest, 0.8 of a mile, to the shortest, 0.39 of a mile. They loop around ball fields, playgrounds and standard park amenities. The landscape is well manicured grass with some shade trees. Two loops make up the route. No ponds.

Users note • The changing leaves will make the route even more attractive. Some personal trainers use the park for "boot camps" because of the expanse of grassy area. Most of the traffic on the trails is from the residences around the park and the city.

Parking • One lot at the entrance.

Facilities • Large restroom and water.

Pets • On leash.
