Description

Contained softball diamonds and picnic areas. The grassy picnic areas led to the Sinnissippi Burial Mounds and the cliffs.3Running with the Demon – pp 11-12

The park was green and rolling where the cliffs rose above Rock River. The thick stands of shag bark hickory, white oak, red elm and maple pre-dated the coming of white man into Indian territory. Where there was space between the larger trees there were walnut, cherry, birch and a scattering of blue and pine spruce. Wild flowers bloomed in spring and leaves that turned all kinds of colours in the autumn.4Running with the Demon – p 34

Alternate Appearance

In John Ross‘ nightmares, the park appeared overgrown with weeds and scrub.
