We are pleased to announce the completion of the first phase of the new picnic park located near mile marker 1 on the Sheepskin Trail.  The ribbon-cutting ceremony was celebrated on Saturday, April 24, 2021.  Approximately 100 attendees joined the Supervisors in dedicating the newest edition to our park family.  The park is a beautifully wooded rest area surrounded by nature and rippling brooks that come together forming a unique confluence providing a serene setting.  Our hope is that visitors take advantage of the tranquil area to reflect and enjoy the outdoors.  Visitors should welcome being away from electronics while sitting and appreciating wildlife.  Distinctive trail art provided by local students and artist, Carrie Attaway, completes the finishing touch to a restful, relaxing atmosphere.  The township will be adding exercise equipment and more benches and tables in the final phase.
