Granite Lake Park Trail connects the two parks for the enjoyment of many. The Centennial Nature Trail follows a small creek that eventually leads to E Banks Street. People place painted rocks throughout the forest for the children to find and re-hide. 

Granite Lake Park consists of paved walking trails, a shelter with bathrooms, a playground area, and a 1-acre lake featuring two piers, fish, and the Granite Lake Ducks."  WEBSITE  The park is a landmark for the citizens to meet, celebrate and play.

The park is beautiful! I went walking last week!
Has anyone suggested that the area be set up so we can access internet? Walking can be so much fun if you can walk to music
