Tilden Regional Park is a HUGE playground for children and adults in our own backyard. There are plenty of trails, swimming holes, there's even a place called "Little Farm" where you can see how a farm works!
There's a carousel, complete with cotton candy and ice cream vendors, and plenty of places to play frisbee or just relax in the sun.
Your family can also reserve a picnic area for parties. There is a swimming area as well, with clear fresh water.
At dusk, you will most likely see at least one deer or fox as you make your way out of the park. There are certain times of the year that you should take precautions against deer ticks as well.
