Kids loved the tour and all the cool things they had for sale. Looking forward to checking out some trails.

Wander along the winding recreation trail scattered with Chinaberry, black walnut, sycamore and cherrybark oak to a quaint pier and shoreline frequented with deer tracks and bivalve shells. A short grassy path hikes through early successional habitat of switchgrass and purple passionflower, a boon for small birds. The recreated Colonial Quaker vegetable and herb garden and vineyard is well maintained. A thrilling nature experience!
