Awesome, Well Maintained Historical Nature Area. The Old Mill and Water Wheel and Dam are Beautiful! The Museum is full of history and Indian Artifacts and the Staff are Passionate about the history and the Natural World surrounding. The trails are super well marked and Maintained. I grew up chasing minnows and tadpoles over 30 years ago, and West Point On the Eno has always been AMAZING for Families....We went to camps, and now My 7yo does...I have been hiking at night with Fantastic Guides, canoeing, and even Birthday parties growing up. Quality Preservation of History and Nature!
This is the kind of public space that every city wishes for, but only a few get. A slow cool river, banked by scenic, easily hiked hills. A historic and functional mill. A zealous citizen support group and a yearly music festival. Truly a green Jewel and an irreplaceable treasure.
