* Enjoy the beautiful scenery in Island Park & Heesakker Park while walking the Heritage Parkway  Trail.  The paved asphalt trail, which is over a mile long,  connects the two parks and is accessible by everyone. The view from the scenic overlook on the bow-string pedestrian bridge connecting the parks is amazing.  Click HERE more details and the trail access map.
