Park Details

Adjacent to Sandburg School, this park contains a rich diversity of oak woodland wild flowers. It is part of a parkway strip.  From the trails there is evidence of the July 1991 windstorm that blew down many large trees.  These canopy openings will provide space for a new generation of oak and hickory trees. 

This conservation park features a nearly one mile hilly trail through mature forest on the north side of a drumlin.
