Alfred A. Ring Park
Located in the heart of Gainesville, Ring Park is a scenic 1.5 mile trail that winds alongside Hogtown Creek. Visit the scenic boardwalk overlook to see where the clear water of Glen Springs mixes with the tannic water of Hogtown Creek.
Birds, gray squirrels, and other urban wildlife are abundant in the park. Visitors may walk or jog the trails, picnic under the pavilion, romp in the playground, rest on a quiet bench or watch the fish in the koi pond.
Parking: Park in the Elks Lodge parking lot. The trailhead is on the southwest side of the parking lot.
