From Jan. 2 - Jan. 26, 2020, this park will be closed every day (including weekends) during deer cull activities, which will take place from 3 p.m. to midnight.

‚Äč‚ÄčLeslie Woods is a 23-acre natural area located south of Leslie Golf Course and north of Upland Drive. Parking may be available on Upland Dr. One trail bisects the park between Upland and the Golf Course (although access to the golf course is restricted). This oak hickory woodland has some of the largest trees found within the parks. A seasonal stream winds through the park. This natural area is undergoing restoration efforts by the staff and volunteers of the Natural Area Preservation Division, including prescribed ecological burns and removal of non-native invasive plants.
