There is ample parking available at the entrance to the park where visitors can enjoy the gorgeous view of the wide open greenway. The open terrain contains a crushed oyster shell path that can be followed into Tallahassee’s iconic and naturally wooded forests. Another entrance, located to the right of the greenway, will lead you to the magnificent Lafayette Heritage Trail.
