    This park has facilities for picnicking, hiking (birding and trail-skiing), fishing, baseball and tennis. They have built several shelters and a lodge which can be rented for group activities in all seasons (call the number below for details). A Rock Garden has been built that features many of the wild flowers from the region and incorporates various stone features common to the area. There is a nice set of falls (upper and lower on Murder Creek) that go into a pool where fishing is allowed with proper licensing.

    The hiking trails are a small part of the larger trail system that extends from Pennsylvania to Lewiston. The total circuit of trails inside the park is a little over two miles. These trails are a good spot for bird watching in fall and spring. You will see many chickadees and nuthatches. The water areas have heron, geese and ducks in the warm weather. You might even see a white-tail deer in the woods line.
    Be aware that the area is heavily grown with poison ivy and sumac and you should prepare yourself properly for encounters with those plants.

    to get there:
    ParkView Drive
    From Route 5, go north on Crittenden Road. Connect to Skyline Drive and go west a short distance to the back entrance to the park.
    Alternatively take roue 5 to route 93 (Buekk Street) and connec to ParkView Drive and go east to the main park entrance.
