    The presentation by MetroParks with current events/classes and park upgrades was great. It was informative and not a basic intro to the park system. Thank you!

    metro parks are the best. I hike them all and you can tell that a lot of respect and care goes into them. People like Dan and Angie are just a sample of the gear people we get meet. I've found metro people are always up beat and very helpful. Thanks again John and Brandon
