Description

This 48-acre park has a lovely trail, children’s playground and swing sets, and a beautiful picnic shelter patterned after the Rock Mill Covered Bridge. Enjoy birding and nature watching, photography, hiking or walking, dog walking, playing in the natural play areas, and picnicking. Admire the late 1800s windmill that was moved and restored in 2016.

Paw Paw Trail
This 1.5-mile trail combines with Walnut Creek Trail to make a two-mile loop.  It is a natural, unpaved trail that may be considered moderate, along ridges, ravines, and meadows. Hikers can expect to see ephemeral spring wildflowers, sycamore trees, a stand of CCC-planted pine trees, paw paw trees, and encounter birding opportunities. Pets on a leash are welcome.

Walnut Creek Trail
This 0.5-mile trail combines with Paw Paw Trail to make a two-mile loop. It is a natural, unpaved moderate trail, with steps to a ravine and through a meadow. Hikers can expect to see ephemeral spring wildflowers, sycamore trees, a forested area, and Walnut Creek.

This park is part of the Fairfield County Parks District.
