Tour Information

This walking tour gows through a landscaped path which leads to Woodland Park. You can wear whatever you would like as long as you have good quality shoes because the path is covered in only grass and all the trees are located along its edge. Though the area is suburban, the park and path are situated on what was once a temperate decious forest. Remenats of this past can be seen in some of the species present, though there are a few non-native species present as well.
