All my life, one of my favorite activities has been long walks in the park. My Mom and Dad took us every Sunday winter,spring, summer, and fall and I have really fond memories of those times.
When I met my husband I found it was something he enjoyed as well and now we drag treat our daughter to it too!
Below are pictures of the park off Riverview Rd. This little creek is where my Dad taught my daughter how to skip stones and though she is 14 and he 85, they still enjoy doing that here. There are picnic tables and benches when you need a rest or a snack!
Here are a couple of pictures of the Oak Grove picnic area. Across from this lovely pavilion are some swings where my daughter and I clocked a lot of "swinging miles".
And below is one of my favorite spots, the Harriet Keeler Picnic area, which is located just off Chippewa Rd., and just as you pass through the center of town. The hiking trail is high above the rushing water and boulders and offers benches, places to rest, and a pavilion for picnics. Your kids will love the nature center where they can learn all about the animals that inhabit the forest and watch the animals that come to the feeders outside.
These last 2 pictures are up just a ways from where we like to skip stones. The sign is just to the left of Riverview Rd. and when you cross Riverview Rd. you will get to a parking area to the left of which is this neat bridge. There is a lower bridge you walk across to get to the Towpath Rd. There you can walk or bike for miles and miles. My husband, daughter, and I biked for about 6 miles one Father's Day to end up at a casual restaurant in Peninsula called Fisher's. We had a great lunch and topped it off with an ice cream cone and then rode the 6 miles back. It was a really great time!
