Park Description: Its trails offer opportunities to walk your dog off leash, learn about Native Americans or ecology, and to have a hike through wetlands, woodlands, and edge environments. The trail to the 9/11 Memorial is handicapped accessible.   A locked gate prevents access to the southern parking areas when ball fields are closed for the season. Dogs are permitted off leash, but not in the area around the playground.    
Trails Overview: The trails in Gedney Park have some relatively flat sections with gentle ups and downs and some short steep sections. In addition to three interpretive trails, there is a handicapped accessible paved path running from the parking lot to a fishing pier on the lake, and short access trails which connect to the longer trails in the park.
