I've spent a lot of time exploring this park and have also wondered about the hunting rules. All I can say is that I've never seen a hunter there myself. Sometimes the gate to the North entrance (Artesian Well Rd) is closed and I've wondered if that might be due to hunting season.In reading up on this place..they allow hunting in a county park? Around here that is never permisssble.
The Preserve is one of my go to places. There is always something interesting to find on the property from flora to fauna.You might want to give the Franklin Preserve a try. take the entrance on 532 across from Lake Chatsworth. This consists mostly of dirt roads that wander thru old bog areas. There are also wooded areas and trails. The roads are packed pretty good and I don't see where your stroller should be a problem at all. It also keeps you far enough from the bushes to keep the chiggers at bay. This is a pretty area, with lots of sky and water views. I've seen eagles, deer and beaver at this area.
You can find a light purple variation there too.Gibby that's beautiful! Blue/purple flower varieties are usually very rare. Great photo. I'm a garden nut so I think I would truly enjoy it here, thank you ALL for being so helpful. I think you guys made my mind up for this week's Piney adventure with the bambino.
