Log Description

On the edge of Walkersville a quaint little park resides just off of HWY 15. There is a Nature Center, a playground, and short trails to explore. One prominent feature is the deck that wraps around two sides of our historic Lime Kiln and Quarry. Standing on the deck is a great view of the water, surrounding rock ledge and local wildlife. We are monitoring how this environment will change over time.
