I usually go here to walk but there is also a nature center that kids love. There are trails, benches, and creeks. There are some stairs in areas but most of the area is flat

Great place for pleasant walk through natural park environment. Interesting little visitor center and historical farm site. Lot of events occur throughout the year.

In early June, I saw a hawk, a turtle and white-breasted nuthatch birds. If you come to Ellanor Lawrence park via Walney Rd. & Route 28, the 1st stop is the parking lot near the Mill. There is a pond for fishing (not sure what...More

Some awesome hiking trails. This place is tucked away and a nice little escape from the hustle and bustle. Great to reconnect with nature, family hikes and if you like geocaching there are quite a few caches on these trails.
