A woodland ramble along a brook’s edge offers a glimpse of a developed area’s natural past. When two land trusts—Westchester and Yorktown—and a developer work together to preserve a sliver of green space, the result can be as delightful as this little forty-five-acre park. Carefully marked, lightly maintained trails (originally established by Wilder-Balter Partners, the developer of the surrounding neighborhood) provide a sense of wilderness in the middle of a suburban subdivision, leading hikers into a mixed deciduous and conifer woods loaded with nut trees, ground flowers, singing birds, the occasional hopping amphibian, and small furry animals.
