In additional to Twin Creeks Park there is another park right at the South entrance to Crane Creek called Woodside Park. Woodside Park is cloaked by towering oaks and includes a sprawling grassy field that’s perfect for kids and pets. There is a commercial grade play set for the kids with a covered patio, tables and restrooms. The open area at the South end of the park is often used for bounce house parties or community held “movies under stars”. The park is perfect for dog walking, jogging, skating or relaxing on the shaded park benches.
The neighborhood sidewalk system connects to a nature trail skirting the 30 acre wildlife sanctuary at Crane Creek’s south end. The nature trail hugs the sanctuary and winds around through two additional neighboring communities providing for a relaxing walk or a little wildlife spotting.
