ON SITE ACTIVITIES
Stroll the over 1/2 mile rough walking path around the park. You'll scope out the many Dragonflies and Damselflies, Butterflies, Northern Cardinals, Eastern Bluebirds, American Robin, American Crow, or even some Bald Eagles. Mind you, we're in "the country" there are wild animals - rabbits, raccoons, snakes, deer, coyotes, etc.
Relax in the hammocks, or touch the sky in the swings. Grab the horseshoes and play a round - or cornhole (aka beanbag toss) - or ladder toss - or washer toss. Enjoy the outdoor games while watching the sun set at New Adventure.
Once the sun sets, you'll be in awe of the night sky. Gaze at the Milky Way, count the shooting stars, and search for your favorite constellation.
