Autumn in Action at Brown’s Woods 

It’s that time of the year! Brown’s Woods is full of oranges, reds, and yellows. Walking on the trails is like entering another world. As the wind blows through the trees the sounds of the city wash away and all you hear is melodic whooshes as leaves dance slowly to the ground. The picturesque park is the perfect place for you and your family to see autumn in action.


Bring your friends, family, or even a date to enjoy a picnic. Pack a basket with your fall favorites, bring that thermos of cider or cocoa, and visit Brown’s Woods. The entrance of the park offers an open area with plenty of room for a blanket, and if that’s not your speed there are plenty of picnic tables. Remember to clean up your trash and leftovers to keep the parks clean for everyone. 


The colorful foliage makes the perfect backdrop for your photographic masterpieces. The trees create a canopy allowing the sun to peek through creating curtains of light perfect for a photo shoot. The natural landscape lets you explore lighting, form, and depth. Even if you are not experienced with photography, you can still get some gorgeous shots while surrounded by this beauty. And who doesn’t love a good family photo in the colorful fall foliage?


While at Brown’s Woods, you can of course enjoy the trails. One of the best things is the variety of trail lengths, inclines, and difficulties. There are six trails ranging from 0.1 to 2 miles. If you want to just do a quick stroll you can, or you could spend hours winding through all of the trails.

Nestled in the timber is a lovely little amphitheater. If you’re a musician, bring your instrument – even if it’s simply your voice – and make music amidst the giant oak trees and native flowers. Or encourage your imaginative kids in your life to put on a nature-inspired play. The landscape alone will inspire great tales of adventure!

While out and about in the woods you can appreciate the vibrant leaves, the sun streaming through the trees, the crunch of gravel beneath your feet, and fully surround yourself with nature while being a quick drive from downtown.
