Nice little park. Particularly good for kids. Has a modern playground, picnic tables, pavilion, short, easy trails, ponds. There's also a nature center open on weekends but closed when I was there.

Open on the weekends, a compact but fun nature center with plenty to offer kids of many ages. There are animals, many learning areas, and even some archaeological finds on display. Some Parks and Recreation activities are held here. My kids have always enjoyed themselves here, and I enjoy visiting, too.

Love this place. Great nature center with lots of critters. Historic limestone quarry and lime kiln. A hidden gem in Frederick county.

Wonderful local park! They let kiddos fish in the summer with a 2 fish max. There are play structures for little as well as the preschool age. The bathrooms are clean and warm in the winter!
