This 17 acre wetland park has approximately six acres of wetland crossed by a 500 boardwalk with two benches for resting and enjoying the beauty of the wetland. The remaining park contains beautiful upland woods, as well as two large picnic areas with three picnic tables in each...and 14 benches for resting along the trails. At the highest point in the park, a gazebo has been built overlooking the lake, Stone Lake, and has provided a beautiful setting for everything from picnicking to family reunions to wedding receptions.
