Personal Experience: I cannot gather much information about this park and it's history unfortunately. We explored in early February after some nice rainfall. This is a pretty, little forest and if you go in winter-late spring, there should be nice greenery. This is a nice hike for families and dog walks. Nothing crazy about it, just a leisurely walk.
We captured some ghostliness in a few of our shots:
Is it possible that this was a portabella mushroom?? It looked exactly like one and I took a little nibble and it was tasty! I really wish I knew at the time whether or not it was edible. I happily would have taken it home and cooked it!
There are Jade plants growing all over this area. Jade is known as the Money Plant in China. It is good luck to have a potted Jade plant in your home:
