Saddle Creek is one of the largest parks in the area, and has facilities for families, individuals, and children alike. Whether you want to do target practice, take your children to the playground, play sports, or use the picnic gazebos, there is always something to do in Saddle Creek.
There are two main trails that are good for hiking, the Nature trail, which is 1.2 miles, and the Tenoroc trail, which has two parts to it. Both allow dogs access, but motorized vehicles are not allowed. The Tenoroc trail has a $3 entrance fee and doing both portions of the trail takes just over an hour. If hiking is not your thing, fishing, boating and camping facilities are available as well.
