Need to Know
Quiet Waters Park is accessible by car for a nominal fee - $6; $5 for those with MVA-issued disability placards or plates; free for those with military service-connected ID (prices valid as of September 2020). Senior Lifetime and Annual Passes are available.
Quiet Waters Park has restroom facilities available in its Visitor Center and near the dog park and beach.
This trail is a favorite exercise trail for humans and (leashed) dogs alike. It is completely paved—for bicyclists and families with strollers or wagons—with a very nice picnic bench and seating area overlooking the South River. It is almost completely shaded. In addition to the occasional canine, you can see birds, squirrels, and on a quiet day, some of the deer that call Quiet Waters Park home.
From the parking area on this loop, you can also reach the pavilion and dog beach on the South River. There is a dog rinse station (no shampoos allowed) near the restroom.
This loop has several flat portions and a couple of mild inclines that may prove taxing to the unconditioned.
Flora & Fauna
The section of the park covered by the Holly Pavilion Trail is heavily wooded, though in sections you can see daylight and fallen trees where the tornado of August 2020 came across from Edgewater. (As of September 2020 the trail has been cleared and is passable again.)
Quiet Waters Park is home to birds, squirrels, and several deer.
