Bottom Line: A lovely park with beautiful gardens, including a children's garden. Great for picnics, walking, and biking. Beautiful gardens to stroll, including a children's garden. Walking trail leads through a shady path in the woods, crosses a small stream and goes around a pond with ducks. 4/5 stars.
Last Sunday, we visited Green Springs for the first time. I had often heard of it but had never been and am so glad we finally got the chance! The 26 acre park has beautiful grounds that are perfect for strolling… and bike riding! We are always on the hunt for safe places for the kids to ride bikes and it was wonderful to discover bike riding is permitted (on the main paths). The park has a large grassy area, as well as a short trail into the woods and around a pond. There are different types of gardens to explore, including a children’s garden.
The park has plenty of historical and horticultural significance, and does a bunch of educational programs, but most of that was lost on us as we simply enjoyed a chance to be outside and enjoy God’s creation. The kids especially loved splashing in the stream in the woods. I’m sure we’ll be back again soon.
