Information
 
The Gorge is located on 64.5 acres of natural woodland. 
 
It was developed in 1930 and is still maintained today. 
 
The Gorge has awesome trails for mountain biking, and great trails for walking and hiking in the summer. 
 
A skills park was recently installed at the Gladys Porter entrance for practice before entering the Gorge or just for fun. 
 
The Gorge is also a fun and challenging space for cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter season. 
 
There are two entrances to the Park: 
 
1) Gladys Porter Drive; this entrance includes parking, and 
 
2) the Grant Street entrance; this entrance is a foot path. Both of these entrances have interpretive signage.
