Explore over 146 acres of gently rolling hills, meadows, woods, natural areas, stream, 15-mile trail system (hiking, biking, or horseback riding), playground, picnic areas, and much more. Lockwood Park is an affordable and family-friendly facility that promotes positive interactions between people and animals.
