There are three short blazed walks here at Johnston War Memorial Park varying from a third of a mile to a full mile. I opted to follow the park walk (marked by yellow footsteps on the asphalt walk). Starting at a parking area just off Memorial Avenue I followed the path counter clockwise around Pocasset Pond. The pond itself is a haven for ducks and geese. I saw several lily pads here as well. After the small bridge over the waterfall the yellow footsteps move away the pond and into the area of the park with several monuments. There is a M60 A3 Main Battle Tank as well as a 105 MM Howitzer located here. The walk then continues by a baseball field and a pavilion before returning to the pond. At the pond I came across a few Canadian Geese and several gosling. They were for the most part very unbothered by people. I finished the walk by returning to the parking area.
I did not find a trail map on-line for this site.
