As we get used to our new pavilion, please be aware of the following:
*The restrooms are currently closed for the winter.
*The large tree structure that we call the "elf house" located near the top of the central trail is made of concrete, with a plexiglass roof, and is actually a storage shed for garden tools. It is not a climbing structure. Please do not allow children to climb that structure for fear of falling, or falling through (It is locked on the outside).
*The birdbaths provide water for birds and small mammals, and the park is a wildlife sanctuary, we take care of their habitat. Please do not allow kids to put rocks, sticks and dirt in the birdbaths. It is not a sanitary place for kids to play.
*Above all, as a friendly reminder, it is important to supervise children at all times in the park, so that everyone has a good time and stays safe.
*And, of course, please leave whatever area you use in at least as good shape as you found it. Good stewardship of our park will keep it safe and happy for everyone!
