Iíve heard the Winslow light festival is a rocking place to be, so might be around the 17th of this month for that. The park is pretty cool, other than having to dodge around a bunch of wood bees, haha.

No problem George ! It was a fun trip. There was a Gazebo and the walkway. I wish I'd taken a photo of the information center about the covered bridge. Here's a photo of the dam

Melissa,i just looked on street view and it looks like the pedestrian walkway is blocked off at the parking lot.

There was a small bridge/walkway leading to the dam area.
