Description

Once farmland and woodlots, more than 50 years of natural succession have created rich areas of forests, thickets, meadows and prairies to explore at Carriage Hill. Farm life in the 1880s comes alive at the historical farm, complete with period farm animals. There are also acres of peaceful beauty to enjoy on foot or horseback. The park has been a favorite places for families to spend quality time together for generations, from picking out penny candy in the Country Store to catching fish at Cedar Lake. Come and join us for a spell.
