Walking Trails - Picnic Areas - Playgrounds - Dick Nichols Park

Dick Nichols Park is a great place to take the family and covers over 152 acres. There are walking trails, playground and playscapes, with a water-play area, and picnic tables with beautiful Oak Trees draping over the tables for shade.

The walking/running trail borders the park, with a paved path making it easy for walking with strollers; this trail is about 1 mile around with plenty of shade trees along the path. There is a public restroom, water fountains, and exercise stations.
