Swede Point Park is a secluded woodland park with camping, a modern playground, and hiking trails. It is close to the High Trestle Trail bridge and makes a great spot to play before you hike or bike over the bridge! There is a fun little log to climb through and a unique swingset.
We visited for just a little bit and played on the playground and looked around, so we will have to return and try out the trails.
