This place is amazing. I love being outdoors and listening to the sound of nature. It's a great place to fish, hike, bike, and go kayaking. The wildlife is always visible and you will always see some sort of wildlife. Chalco also has parks for kids to play on and an off leash dog trail. There is also a huge hill which is perfect for sledding down.
Love love love. Take it slow. Walk the mowed paths off of the concrete trail. If you're an off-road bicyclist, you'll love this off the path adventure. Sure it will take you closer to the hustle and bustle of the business area running adjacent to the park, but the beauty and quiet spender of being away from other walkers and bikers, will feed your soul. And it's a great workout!
