The multi-use path system is the talk of the town, as it has provided residents with an unparalleled laidback lifestyle in an environment of leisurely tranquility. Locals and visitors alike can traverse the community with great ease and bit of whimsy, accessing everything from nearby lakes, parks, trails and playgrounds to local businesses and venues.
