Including two historic wooden covered bridge dating back to the mid-1800s’.

It now encompasses over 180 acres including two spring fed streams, an island on the Flat River, and a portion of the 4000 mile North Country Trail passing through its boundaries. The park also boasts paved and unpaved walking paths, several play grounds, ball fields, and a disc golf course.
