Yes! Our Nature Play Area is officially open! Come on over to jump, climb and build any day. The water pump will be turned on as soon as the weather allows, but there is still plenty of fun to be had!
Where did the picnic shelter go?
Our aging picnic shelter was removed in March 2019 to make way for a new picnic pavilion! Slated for construction this summer, the new pavilion will feature a covered picnic area, concession window, bathrooms and a small indoor classroom. Stay tuned for more information about the timeline and rental options as the project progresses!
