  • The park is beautiful and has continued to improve it's picture esque beauty. Near the nature center it's like a wonder land, everything is pristine and close to nature, there are many paths that lead to hidden magical places. The pond bridges and tucked away nooks make this little park feel gigantic, giving you an entirely new world to explore. The further you delve into the park the more beautiful it gets. You get a feel for it's ecological uniqueness. Each trail leads to even more scenic beauty, creating a memorizing affect, making you feel simultaneously lost and found. I genuinely suggest visiting, it's a wonderful experience.
  • The largest and arguably the best park in Monroe County, offering a plethora of year round outdoor activities. Seriously, this park has so much to offer, it cannot be overstated. I recommend the Wild Wings and bird feeding areas. It took several visits, but finally the chickadees ate right from my hand! Get out there and enjoy God's creation, you will not be disappointed:)
