09/02/04.  Very brief stop. This is a much larger park than the nearby Charles Ryder Park.  And it is much busier also.  It is also a larger park.  There is some woods to explore.  There is a dirt/gravel road off the circular drive that heads uphill to what looks to be like a dump for vegetation refuse.  But I did not see any formal paths.  Dr. Patrick L.
