Avalon park and preserve was a welcome surprise to both of us. Looking at it a map of the trails online, we realized that this was not going to be fully explored in a day. The park is well tended, with sturdy boardwalks and stairs that lead you up towards the preserve. The open meadow must be fabulous in summer, it was still delightful on a cold, grey afternoon. The preserve trails include a number of small hills that are rather treacherous if you have bad knees. Clearly, this spot is a favorite with families and dogs for good reason.
