- General info
This is a wonderful recreational area primarily because it was designed to allow everyone enjoyment of nature regardless of physical challenges or age. Twelve years of effort created a fun place providing a variety of outdoor facilities, such as a volleyball court, softball field, horseshoe pits, and a wheelchair-accessible fishing pier. Pavilions can be reserved. A 4.5-mile trail is paved and ready for wheelchairs or rollerblades. The trail traverses grassy meadows cutting through a beautiful lodgepole pine forest and around Maney Lake. Picnic tables, toilets, and drinking water are available. Opens Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.
