Completed in 1998, this 1-acre park is located in the north-central portion of the city. The park has a 5-acre forested conservation area named "Betty's Woods" to memorialize Betty Czarapata who spearheaded invasive species management efforts here and throughout Muskego. These woods have an exceptional growth of spring ephemeral wildflowers and has endangered crow's foot sedge growing in a wooded wetland depression. A boardwalk trail allows convenient viewing of these woods.
Please be advised to wear or bring with you the following: good walking shoes, umbrellas, sunscreen, bug repellent, hat, layers or a jacket, camera, and water.
