Walktober Day 12 – +Explore Herrington Manor

by Oct 12, 2021Walktober

Welcome back to Day 12 of Walktober!

Today, we’re highlighting Herrington Manor State Park, just minutes from downtown Oakland!

Luke Mongrain and all the staff at the park are welcoming and invite you to visit. It’s such a calming, beautiful site! There’s a paved path around part of the lake making the beauty accessible to more people. We have had a lot of fun exploring the park and we want to hear about your favorite things to do at Herrington!
