This piece of property consists of twelve acres of mostly woodland, a one acre pond and a house. The house has been converted into classrooms for teaching. The pond is suitable for fishing and serves as the host for pond studies as well as amphibian monitoring. There are easy walking trails throughout the site. Visitors can expect a leisurely walk along the trails in mostly shade, areas with benches for quietly enjoying the fishing and tranquility.

This property is opened only for scheduled programs and is not opened for daily public access.  Programs are scheduled through the Natural Resources Management Unit.  For information regarding this park or to set up a program, contact Joni Atkinson at (770) 528-8818.
