Four Seasons to Enjoy

There is no particular "best" season to visit the park for each has its own charm and variety of activities. In the spring, wildflowers bloom in great profusion to add to the beauty of the natural area. Summer brings pleasantly warm weather and abundant sunshine. Autumn boasts a colorful display as the hardwood forest and then the tamaracks change color. A mantle of snow sets the stage for winter enjoyment.
