Comments

Horse Park
This is a popular park for horseback riders. If you hike the horse trails you will encounter horseback riders, even on a week day.

Wildlife Sanctuary
The northeast corner of the park is a wildlife sanctuary. Trails leading to it are marked “Trail Closed”.

Important Bird Area
In 2004 Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve was designated an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society.

Flies
This is a popular park for horseback riders. Horse flies and deer flies are prolific here in the summer. Deer fly season is June and July. Horse fly season is July and August. If you hike the horse trails during fly season you will want to wear a long sleeve shirt and long pants. A headnet is a plus.

Prairie Restoration
The area labeled “restored prairie” on the park map was sprayed with 2,4-d herbicide in May, 2014. One week later, every plant on these prairies was dead or dying.
