  • The Park is relatively close to the Center and Black Gold, but does not have many indications of how to access it in the city, and even the Board in BR is not very clear. The Park has many trails and a museum mounted on a Girl Scout House restored. The dirt road leading to the visitor center is in a relatively good condition.
