Donaldson Run Walkabout

Starting at Taylor Elementary School with Lee Heights Park as the final destination, this Walkabout travels through a neighborhood shaped in large part by the trees that shade the area’s homes and yards. One of the highlights of the tour is Zachary Taylor Park. A prime example of how a streambed can be restored without rocks or concrete, the Park offers visitors a choice of a bike path or a mulched nature trail.
