Most people recognize the park for The Dueling Oaks, an area where actual duels used to occur. However, the Park now features fishing and gondola rides among various walking trails and historic structures.
The Park even contains a 60-acre forest as well as various dining opportunities. There’s always something to do in the park, which is actually larger than New York City’s Central Park.
