Beautiful out of the way park, some things to do: 8 mile paved path around kent lake, petting farm you can buy duck and goose eggs even chickens, resturaunt, hay rides, nature trails, nature center, Golf, several playgrounds, MANY BBQ grills, 2 beaches w/concessions, boathouse/rentals, Ferry, firework display. The park is 2-3 dollars admission, free during the off season. This place has always been a family tradition, every summer we go a few times. During my Highschool cross country years we would run the loop for practice, lots of hills so be prepared. Ther are 3 parks close by that allow for camping and canoe's.
Pros: 30 min. from city, lots of wild life, inexpensive
Cons: 30 min from city, crowded holidays
