  • Checking out the park for the first time. Saw duck and geese in the ponds. Nice area to walk with younger kids. Kids enjoyed the playground outside the center.  more »
  • Emily oaks is a perfect place to spend with family or friends. Walking the trails, seeing the wilderness and fresh air is all you need on a warm spring or summer day! The park is great for children...  more »
  • A 5 minutes drive from 90/94 yet it's like a world away. Sweet hidden pocket of nature that encircles a lake where you can learn about nature and get your walk on. Great for young families as there is a wonderful playground with swing set.
  • It's a truly magical place, especially the metamorphosis it continually undergoes. Gorgeous landscapes whichever way you look, birds abound (including those that will protect their nest by whizzing by your head). Come here alone and take a relaxed, purposefully slow walk on the woodchip path. Make sure to stop and smell the flowers - literally.
