Over all it's a nice place to go for a good long walk. Some of the trails need a little maintenance, though none of the posted trails are in that bad a shape. It is good for photos of nature in general specific animals I did not see any when I went. Did hear a lot of birds of you like just listening to nature. There is a store on sight, looked more like a gift shop. I did not go in so I can not confirm.

Great place for a walk. Lots of trails and play space for kids. My kid likes to throw rocks into water and down sewer grates so this place is amazing. I can let him go and get 8 hours of piece while he slowly fills the lake with rocks.

Beautiful, great trails. Down side: No dogs allowed because it's a Nature Reserve. Friendly staff.

I can't believe I've lived this close to Beechwood Farms for over a year and it was the first time I went. We went on a rainy cooler day took a walk down to the lake and back up around to the Natural play area and it was just absolutely beautiful! Look forward to exploring more in the future. The one employee I ran into was super helpful and even ran grab them out for us.
