While in town, head over to the two-acre Bicentennial Park for a little walk along the paved paths, or play on the grassed area. There is a veteran’s memorial and beautiful gardens to admire here. The other main park in town is also worth a visit, the Fort Island/ Griffiths Park. This area is rich in geologic history, with kettle and kame (mound) formation from ancient glacial action common throughout the area. There is a boardwalk and short trails to check out with your pup. At the park, there are also the usual amenities; a great playground for the kids, restrooms, ball courts and picnic areas. Keep your pet leashed while you enjoy both of these community parks together.
