Park “Secret” – Dogwood Meadow

Dogwood MeadowCan you find our beautiful Dogwood Tree blooming this weekend?  Good Luck!

Clue:  It is still growing in the same place as you see in this postcard.  The “Supervisor’s Cottage” or “Log Cabin” is no more, but you can still relax in a sunny meadow that was once our park manager’s “front lawn” in the South Falls Day-Use Area today.
