Nestled in the Kettle Creek valley lands, the Dan Patterson walking trail is close to home, but far enough to escape city life. The walking trail starts at Dan Patterson Conservation Area, which is a popular picnic spot complete with a playground, rentable pavilion and splendid shade trees. The trail meanders through a wetland reconstruction project that is now home to an abundance of wildlife that can be viewed from two viewing platforms.

Dogs must be on a leash. Off-leash recreation is restricted to the Kettle Creek Dog Park.

Permissive use access applies to this property from dawn to dusk, May 1 – November 30.
