Purchase of these 80 acres was made possible by Mary Ellen Arnold in 1994. Over 2 miles of trails.
All 80 acres have been dedicated through IDNR's Division of Nature Preserves.
The woods are hilly, with a small stream and Willow Creek, a significant Cedar Creek tributary, flowing through it. The property was acquired to honor Fort Wayne's Bicentennial in 1994. Towering oaks, hickories and sycamore, some more than 200 years old, dominate the woods. Acquisition was made possible by grants from the Indiana Heritage Trust program, the Indiana Chapter of the Nature Conservancy and local foundations, businesses and individuals rounding field. Redwing blackbirds thrive here.
