The loop in Franklin Park is an easy, 2.5 mile trail with nice sceneries. Franklin Park is part of the "Emerald Necklace" and it's a popular destination for families. Riding towards the arch and Scarboro Pond provides a beautiful view. It's an easy ride with plenty of rest areas. There's also a recreational facility in the park with baseball courts, cricket, etc. Did I mention there's a zoo in the park?

Franklin Park isn't in the nicest area of town, but it has well-maintained paths for walking, running, and biking. I think it's great for families, particularly as Franklin Park Zoo is located within.
