The 5-acre county facility is located within a redeveloped gravel quarry that opens onto 210 acres of recreation and habitat areas for fishing, bird-watching, walking, bike-riding, jogging, picnicking and outdoor educational activities.

To keep the parks and trails of the Emerald Necklace Park Network at their best and help out the municipalities overseeing the locations, Amigos de los Rios conducts weekly Park Grooming Events. This work is all lovingly done by volunteers. We welcome anyone that wants to help out their community, learn about nature and their environment, and get to know others with the same interests.
